Finding Audiovisual Material
Browsing the Shelves
Audiovisual materials (audio- and videotapes, CD's, DVD's) are shelved in different areas of the Library:
- Most audiovisual materials are shelved on the two sets of shelves near the Library entrance. (to your left as you enter the Library). Shelving is by call number.
- NCME videos are shelved along the windows, on the right side as you enter the library.
- Audio Digest audio cassettes are stored in the file cabinets near the back of the library, past the display journals.
- Some books have CD-ROM discs included. These CD-ROM's are kept at the Circulation Desk. The CD-ROM and the book may be checked out either separately or together.
It's easy to find audio or video materials with the Online Catalog.

Using Audiovisual Materials In The Library
The Library has an Audiovisual Carrel with three workstations. Each workstation is equipped with a video monitor, a VCR/CD/DVD player, and an audiocassette player.
The Library also has two combo TV/VCR's (one has a DVD player). These can be used within the Library or checked out.
CD-ROM's may be temporarily installed on one of the three computers at the
round table next to the audiovisual carrel. Please ask a library staff member for assistance.
Audiovisual materials (except those marked "Reference") check out for a period of two weeks, with one renewal. CD-ROM's that are included with books check out for three weeks, with one renewal.
