Purchase Request

We encourage faculty members to request audiovisual titles for purchase or licensing. If you are requesting a title for use in a class on a specific date, please make sure to include this information on the form.

DVD Videos

Please allow 1 business day for processing requests for DVDs at the same campus, and 2-3 business days to process requests for DVDs at a different campus.

You can renew a DVD for an additional 5 days through My Library Account, provided that there are no immediate requests for the item.
