Video viewing stations (TV with DVD/VCR and headphones) are available in each campus library to preview the videos. To watch a video in the library, bring it to the Loan Desk and staff will remove the security casing. No reservations are necessary to watch videos in the library, and videos are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
