Media Library requests may be made in person at the Library Circulation Desk during service hours*. If requests are made a few days in advance, the item should be ready for you to pick up at Circulation. Media item checkout is limited to faculty. Students may view these items in the Library.  As with book check out, if you wish to have a TA or staff person check out an item for you, that person needs to be authorized on your library account.

Please check the library catalog to ascertain if the media item you want is available.

You can also use the library catalog’s  Advanced Search; search by title or subject and select Media Library as the Collection.

Please record the item call number and provide that information to expedite the retrieval process.

Media Library items checked out to faculty are due back in 7 days. Items may be renewed up to 4 times online.  If a longer loan time is needed, please make that request at checkout. All items are subject to recall. All media items may be shown in the classroom.  When you view item information in the catalog, a note on performance rights should display.  If there is no note, you may request information on performance rights.

Before planning a public showing, please verify that Drew has public performance rights. Questions? Ginny Palmieri, .


Media items on Reserve may only be checked out of the library by the professor that currently has the item on Reserve. If an item is on reserve for more than one professor, the item may only be checked out of the library for four hours.

If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Johanna Edge.
