Film & Media
Faculty and staff may borrow a film for seven days.
Renewals: Faculty and staff may request to renew a film by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before the film is due. The response to such a request will depend upon any pending reservations from other borrowers for that film.
Students may borrow films for three hours and must view the film in the Healey Library. Late fees are assessed at the rate of .10 cents per minute.
Lost/Damaged: The borrower will be charged the replacement cost plus a processing fee for lost or damaged films. (All patrons should be aware that many of the educational films in the Healey collection can cost anywhere from $200-$1,000 for a DVD. The average film retail price does not apply in many cases.
Check out films at the Circulation Desk during library hours. Faculty members must pick the film up in person, or send a previously designated proxy borrower.
Students must view films in the library at a media viewing station on the third floor of the Healey Library or view using a personal laptop or a library laptop.
Classroom Viewing (Faculty / Staff Only)
Faculty and staff may reserve films for classroom viewing for a seven day loan period.
Reservations: Faculty and staff must submit a Classroom Viewing Reservation Form at least three weeks in advance to assure that a given film will be available for the date requested. (The library will process forms submitted in a shorter time frame but cannot always assure that a film will be available in the time frame requested.)
If the library does not already own the film, the library will attempt to acquire it for classroom viewing on the date requested.
Library staff will contact the faculty or staff member if a film cannot be available on the date requested.
Viewing Equipment: To arrange for equipment for showing the film in a classroom contact the Media Services division of IT.
For information about checkout, renewals and lost/damaged films, see Borrowing Policies above.
Recommend Films for the Collection (Faculty / Staff Only)
Faculty and staff may recommend films to be purchased for the collection using the library’s Film Acquisition form.
Place a Film on Course Reserve (Faculty Only)
Faculty may place a film on course reserves at Healey Library for student use outside of the classroom.
Faculty should send an email with the course number and film title information to email@example.com.
If the film is not already owned by the library, the library will attempt to purchase it to be placed on course reserves.
Showing a Film to a Group Outside the Classroom Setting
Showing a film from the Healey collection to a group outside of the classroom setting requires performance rights. If the library catalog record for the film does not clearly state that public performance rights are granted, then the person or group interested in showing the film must independently contact the copyright holder to confirm, negotiate, or purchase film performance rights.
