For UW Students

Course Reserves

Instructors place videos and sound recordings on reserve for students at the Media Center. These reserve items generally check out for a 2 or 4 hour loan period and are for in-library use only.

For UW Instructors

Media Course Reserves & Bookings

UW instructors may place Libraries' owned and personally owned items on reserve at the Media Center. Instructors may also schedule (aka "book") media items ahead of time for classroom screenings.

Items on reserve may be checked out by other instructors. If there is a certain date you plan on showing  a reserve item in class, we recommend you schedule your screening dates with us ahead of time. If you cannot pick up the items yourself, provide us with the name of the person who will. Borrowing privileges are not transferable, so this person must use their own Husky Card.
