Changes to Library Media Materials Beginning August 1

Category: Uncategorized

Beginning August 1, all media (e.g. DVD/VHS) used for classroom purposes will be held on reserve in the library.  Any items that were checked out for classroom use during the last academic year have been automatically added to the reserve collection.  If there are items that were not used last year but will be used this year, please contact the library to have it added to the reserve collection as soon as possible.

Check out periods for media reserve material will be 7 days for faculty and 2 hours (in library use only) for students.  All media not on reserve will be available for checkout by all library users for 2 weeks with 1 renewal.

Reserve materials are located behind the circulation desk at all campus libraries.  All DVDs not on reserve will be located in public browsing spaces at each library.

Questions?  Please contact Susan Kellerstrass, Library Circulation Specialist, at susan.kellerstrass@icc.edu or 694-8463.
