Audiovisual (AV): Loan Periods & Fines

Reserve Items

Items placed on reserve by instructors may only be viewed in the Audiovisual Department--they are checked out but may not leave the library. They are housed behind the AV desk and an AV employee must retrieve the title for you. Titles that are checked out less than two hours before closing must still be returned that same day; students are not allowed to take them home overnight.

Items placed on reserve by instructors that may be checked out for 24 hours. These are also stored behind the AV desk and an AV employee must retrieve the title for you.

Browsing Collection

The Browsing Collection consists of current popular and feature film DVDs which are available for checkout for a three day loan period. Items may be renewed by calling the department or requesting renewal at the desk. The browsing area is located just to the left of the Audiovisual desk.

Main Collection

Our main collection consists of over 5,500 DVDs and VHS tapes and is organized according to Library of Congress numbers. If a title does not have one of the stickers identified above, the loan period is seven days. Titles may be renewed by phone or in person.
