Locating Visual Materials in VSC Libraries
Use the advanced search feature in the Library Catalog to search for visual materials. Select "Visual Materials" as the format to limit your search to only VHS and DVD items.
DVD and VHS items can be shipped directly to your home and should be returned to the library. Visual materials have a loan period of two weeks and may not be renewed.
Reserving Media for the Classroom
Feature films, documentaries, teaching resources, and sound recordings are available for classroom use. You can request that visual materials be sent to you at a specific time in the semester by using this media request form.
Faculty can coordinate with site staff to make the material available for on-site viewing outside of the class time; in addition, materials may be lent to students for individual viewing. Faculty members are responsible for visual materials checked out to them.
Streaming Video from the Web
In addition to the films available in the Hartness Library collection, you may also find Web-based Tools to discover free video content on the Web. Please check with a staff member to make sure the Internet bandwidth can accommodate streaming video in the classroom.
Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries
You can request to borrow visual materials from other libraries. Use the Worldcat library catalog to locate items, then either place requests directly from the "Request Item" link within the Worldcat item record, or use the Request Video form for an interlibrary loan.
Please note that it can take up to two weeks to receive materials and many academic libraries DO NOT lend films through interlibrary loan. Please call the main library (1-800-431-0025) if you have questions about item availability.
