DVDs in Leavey Library - Finding & Using: Getting DVDs for Class (Course Reserves)
This is a guide to finding, reserving, and viewing DVDs and videos held in the Leavey Library. The collection is an interdisciplinary one that supports class instruction and may be used for research and academic events.
Professors/instructors wanting to show films in their class must fill out the library's online reserve form through ARES.
Once all the required information is filled out detailing the film that is desired to be purchased select "Please consider this item for purchase". The Library will endeavor to purchase all films needed for a course.
Please keep in mind that it may take at
least three weeks for a film or films to become available in Leavey for check-out. Because of this
professors/instructors are strongly urged to submit their requests as far ahead as possible before the actual time
they wish to show a given film in their classrooms.
