Film & Video Bookings for Class Use

If you're a faculty member or  graduate teaching assistant, you can reserve a video for use in a class.  Just make your request via our  Video Bookings form.

  • Athens campus instructors: please provide at least 24 hours notice (excluding weekends) for videos to be pulled and available. Regional campus instructors: please provide at least 7 days notice. If using multiple videos throughout the semester, please submit your video list at the beginning of the semester to ensure the best chance of all videos being available on the requested dates.
  • Videos may be picked up at the scheduled time at the Alden Library 4th Floor Service Desk. Athens Campus faculty enrolled in Faculty and Staff Delivery Services may have their videos delivered to their department’s delivery location.
  • You may also request a DVD drive for temporary classroom use along with your video, via the Video Bookings form. External DVD drives are available on a first-come, first served basis. The drive will accompany your requested film via the pick-up/delivery location you indicated above. You will need a laptop or computer with appropriate ports in order to use the external DVD drive. We do not provide in-class support. You are responsible for returning the external DVD drive and accompanying cords in proper working order. Replacement fee is $100 per item.

Find films and videos available through the Libraries, on DVD or via streaming. If we don't own a video that you need, contact your subject librarian to make a purchase request.

If you want your students to view the videos in the library, see the Course Reserves staff at the 4th floor Circulation Desk of Alden Library or email reserves@ohio.edu.
