Who can check out a Video?

You can check out our videos at the Library's circulation desk. As these are predominantly for classroom use, our loan periods are more restrictive than those of our regular book collection. John Jay Faculty get a 3-day loan period but can request an extension prior to the duedate at All other CUNY faculty* and all CUNY (including John Jay) students get a 3-hour loan period and must watch the videos in the Library. Non-CUNY patrons need to arrange a guest pass into the Library and then arrangements can be made for them to view a video on premises.  

*If other CUNY faculty would like to borrow a video to show in their classes, requests must be made through their campus's media or interlibrary loan departments (this varies by campus).


Where can I view a Video?

DVD's can be viewed on any Library computer and headphones are provided if needed. All VHS tapes, however,  must be viewed in the Library's media rooms. If you need to use the room, the staff at the circulation desk will direct you.
