For Faculty: Falvey's new video/DVD loan policy

When faculty borrow a video or DVD from the Falvey collection, they can now come to the Circulation desk to claim the item and check it out, just like checking out a book. And they will receive a due date slip printed by the automated circulation system.
To initiate the video/DVD request, faculty will still need to complete an online request form: Requesting a Mixed Media Item from the Falvey Collection (Periodical/Media Center), under the “Request Forms” link on Falvey’s home page.

The following applies to the video/DVD loan policy for faculty:
• 7-day loan period
• One renewal for 7 additional days
• E-mail reminders or other notices will be sent

This new, more efficient procedure will utilize VUCat data to provide accurate information about the availability of videos and DVD’s. 

Requests to place video and DVD titles on Course Reserve will continue to be handled as usual. 

Special requests may be directed to or call 610-519-4271.
