Media Technologies - Loan Periods

Reserve Items

Items placed on 2 Hour Reserve by instructors may only be viewed in the Media Technologies Department--they are checked out but may not leave the library. They are housed behind the Media Technologies desk and an 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 may also be placed on reserve by instructors that may be checked out for 24 hours or 3 Days. These are also stored behind the Media Technologies desk and an employee must retrieve the title for you.

Collection

Our collection consists of over 10,000 DVDs and VHS tapes and is organized according to Library of Congress numbers. The loan period is seven days for all titles, including new titles. Titles may be renewed by phone or in person.

Replacement Policies

  • Replacement costs and processing fees will be charged for lost items. 
  • Patrons may not purchase a replacement for an item that has been "lost." The replacement cost will be charged to their account at the business office.
