Audio and Video Booking Information

Due to the closure of campus libraries, we have updated our options for receiving your requested materials. See this page for more information: 

Booking Material for Classroom Use

UO Faculty and GTFs can book audio and video material for classroom use (instructions below). Booking requests should be submitted as far in advance as possible, but at least four business days before the expected use. Please consider shipping time when booking material that needs to travel to or from the Eugene main campus and OIMB/Portland campuses. Booking requests are submitted and confirmed via LibrarySearch.

Instructors who would like a student or assistant to pick up booked material on their behalf should contact a staff person at the appropriate checkout desk in advance. Faculty may also ask their library proxy to pick up material. 

Audio and video items may be booked for up to six days. Items on course reserves may only be booked for four hours.

If you need classroom technology support or equipment please contact the Center for Media and Educational Technology.
