Media Collection

Located on Hunter Library’s main floor, straight ahead from the main entrance past the Circulation Desk and to the left of the elevator, the Media Collection contains VHS Videos, DVD’s, CD’s, and Audiocassettes.  These materials are available for checkout during the hours the library is open. Viewing/listening stations for these materials are located in the orange cubicles past the Reference Desk.  Headphones must be used with the viewing/listening stations, and can be checked out at the Circulation Desk. 

Please bring all media materials to the Circulation Desk for check out.  Media Reserves are also housed at this desk.

Checking Out Media Materials

Media materials (CD’s, Audio Tapes, DVD’s, and Videos) are to be brought to the Circulation Desk to be checked out or returned.

A valid WCU ID Card must be presented for media materials to be checked out.  Non-University borrowers may check out CD’s only, with a Library issued Borrower's Card.

A student may check out Media materials for a faculty member by applying for a proxy card. The faculty member assumes full responsibility for the return of the materials, or payment if the materials are lost or damaged. 

CD’s, Videos, DVD’s, & Audiocassettes check out for 1 week.  Overdue fines are 25 cents per day.   Overdue notices are sent via the University email system.

Due dates for faculty may be altered beyond the standard checkout for media items needed for classroom instruction.  The maximum extended checkout period will be one month. 
Items MUST be brought back to the library when due.  If no other patron needs the item at that time, the items may be renewed.

Media Reserves

Media reserves are also kept at the Circulation Desk.  You must present the call number of the item you need to the Circulation Desk staff.  If the item is available, you must present your WCU ID Card to check it out.

Media Reserves have a standard check out period of 4 hours and must be used in the building.  At the professors discretion some items may have different check out periods on a case-by-case basis.  Overdue fines are 50 cents per hour.   Overdue notices are sent via the University email system.

Media Materials, including Media Reserves, may not be renewed online or by phone.  They must be renewed at the Circulation Desk.
