Who can check out a DVD or VHS?

As DVDs and VHD are intended for classroom or individual viewing at John Jay College, our loan periods are short. John Jay Faculty may borrow for a 3-day loan period and can request an extension prior to the due date 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.  

Faculty should reserve DVDs in advance for classroom use.
