Media checkout streamlined

July 15, 2013

New at Cabell Library, all checkouts of media are managed by the single service desk. Previously, checkouts were on the third floor. Now, patrons have two easy paths.

  • To borrow DVDs, VHS tapes, 16mm films and other materials, request them at the front desk. Library staff will pull the materials for immediate checkout. During busy times, there might be a slight wait.
  • Members of the university community can also place holds or requests for retrieval for media materials through the search box. The materials will be pulled and held for pick up at the service desk.

Most media are not on open, self-serve shelves.  Albums, scores and other musical materials remain available on open shelves on the third floor. Browse and bring selections to the first floor. If Innovative Media (third floor) is closed, bring requests to the first floor desk.
