Finding Videos: DVD/VHS in the Library

IMC (3rd Floor)

The Instructional Materials Center (IMC), on the third floor of the UWSP Library houses the majority of the Library's media collection.  These items can be checked out for a 14 day period.

Reserves (1st Floor)

Some DVD/VHS have been placed on reserve for a specific class.  These items can be found at the Reserve Desk located behind the Access Services Desk on 1st floor.  The location information in the library catalog record notes "temporarily shelved at Reserve Desk."  These items generally can be checked out for a 3-hour period and can only be viewed in the Library.  Ask for assistance at the Main Circulation Desk.
