Multimedia Reserves

Placing Multimedia Items on Reserve

Our Place Items on Reserve form now includes multimedia reserves.

Check the UNH library catalog to see if we own the videos or CDs.

  • If we do not already own the material, keep in mind it may take several weeks to receive new items and have them cataloged. Please place your requests well before you need them.
  • Personal copies of videos and CDs that are put on reserve must be legally obtained copies.
  • We are unable to put materials that have been borrowed from other libraries on reserve.

If you plan on using a film for a short period of time (either on reserve for your students or to show in a class), please remember that movies in the general collection get checked out for 1 week. Contact staff at least 2 weeks in advance to have them set the material aside. This allows time to request an item which may be checked out to another patron. We cannot guarantee availability of a VHS or DVD if given less than two weeks notice.

We usually have only one copy of an item; please consider how many students will be viewing the items. Consider booking showings of films in Studio 235. You can reserve the room by calling (603) 862-1756 or by filling out the Multimedia contact form.

Once Items are on Reserve

Reserve items are kept behind the Circulation desk on level 3, and can be requested by title by students. Please ensure your students know the title of items they are required to use.

You can get a list of items you have on reserve by going to the UNH library catalog and clicking on Course Reserves. Look up your course by name or course number. All multimedia reserves will be listed with [Multimedia] following the Professor and Course Names.
