Booking Videos

What is Booking?
Faculty may “book” or reserve videos so that specific titles are available in the future when needed for in-class or other uses. Bookings must be placed a minimum of 24 hours before the pick-up time. You may borrow videos that are available without booking them in advance; booking is just a way of assuring availability.
