Films on Reserve for Class

To request films for course viewing outside of class, please use our Place Items on Reserve form linked from our Course Reserves page and choose the "streaming video" option at the bottom of the first screen. More information about this service is available on the first page of the form. 

To request films to show in class, use the same online form and choose the "classroom showing" option. We will then have the DVD or blu-ray or 16mm film checked out to you and ready for pick-up at the library service point of your choice at the date you specify.
