Media placed on Audiovisual Reserve have a loan period of two hours and are not available for circulation outside the library. Students must view reserve media in the audiovisual department at one of the ten viewing stations in the department. All media requested for scheduled showings are placed on reserve two weeks in advance of the scheduled show date and remain on reserve for the semester. Personal copies of media may be placed on Audiovisual Reserve. Library bar codes are affixed to personal media to facilitate circulation and provide security.
