Videos & DVDs |

Things to Remember!
  • The New Media Center (NMC) and Music Library staff members are responsible for distributing videos and music-related videos, respectively.
  • Some videos circulate and some don't, so the NMC offers viewing rooms with VCRs and DVD players. You can request a room at the NMC service desk on the 2nd floor.
  • Media that circulates must be returned on time. Items returned late incur late fees. Videos that circulate incur a late fine of $5.00 per day.

Videos & DVDs

Some students are surprised to learn that the Brooklyn College Library houses more than just books and journals. In fact, the Library is home to many videos, including music-related videos. These videos are accessed on the second floor, either in the New Media Center (for most videos) or Music Library (for music-related videos).

Using OneSearch or the catalog, you may look up specific titles to see if the Library owns a copy. Some videos circulate and can be checked out of the Library. Please see the staff at the New Media Center for assistance.

Circulation of Media Material

Circulating videos are charged out at the Music Service Desk on the 2nd floor. The loan period for BC students and Brooklyn College Academy (BCA) students is 10 days. The loan period for all CUNY faculty is 2 weeks. Loan periods for reserve media are usually 2 hours (for in-library use only) or 3 days. Borrowing time limits are placed on materials to ensure that they are accessible to as many people as possible. Videos and DVD's may be returned to the Music Library Service Desk or the Main Circulation Desk.

Viewing Rooms

Items that circulate may be taken home and viewed at your leisure. However, items that are on 2-hour reserve must be viewed in the Library.

The New Media Center (2nd floor) has rooms that can be reserved for group viewing/listening. For more information, contact the New Media Center at (718) 951-5327 or NewMedia@brooklyn.cuny.edu.

Late Fees

Once you are finished viewing the video (whether it was in a viewing room or at home), you must return the item to the NMC service desk on the 2nd floor. If material is returned late, you will incur late fees.
