How many DVDs does Reynolds Libraries have in its collection?
Almost 3,000 DVDs are owned by all three campus libraries.  

How many DVDs can I check out at one time?
You can check out up to 3 videos for a 1-week loan period. Near the end of the 1 week loan period, you can also renew the videos for an additional 1 week loan period if no one else has requested/placed a hold on the videos you are borrowing.

I am an instructor and need to reserve a DVD to show in my class.  What is the process for requesting a video to show in my class and how long will it take to receive the video?
You should complete and submit our Video Request form. Please note that if we need to borrow a specific video title from another library, it can take up to 2 weeks to receive the video in the mail.

I would like to recommend a video purchase that is not currently owned by Reynolds Libraries. What is the process for recommending a video purchase for the library and how long will it take to receive the video? 
Use the Recommend a Purchase form to request a new video.  If you need the video for a class or assignment, make sure to indicate that need in the form. It generally takes over a month to purchase, receive and process a new film.  Other options may include: requesting the film from another library through Interlibrary Loan and using the streaming video content from the Films on Demand database or SWANK Digital Campus.  When you submit the request, a Reynolds librarian will evaluate all options for providing video content.
