I wish the Library had some videos on....
If the Library does not own AV materials appropriate for use in your classes, and you would like some help in identifying good choices among the range of materials available, the Information Services Librarians will be happy to help, just call 373-3839.
Any video priced at $150.00 or more must be previewed and approved before purchase. Contact your library liaison or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to preview a video prior to recommending its purchase by the Library.
Placing AV Materials on Reserve
AV materials owned by the Library--or any materials you yourself own and would like to make available to your students--may be placed on Reserve in the Library for use by your classes. Place your request at the Desk in person, or email Pamela Williams, Access Services Assistant II, at email@example.com, or use the Instructors' Reserve Request Form.
