A note on locations:
Instructors who wish to reserve films for classroom viewing are asked to complete the Film booking request form to request that films be booked for specific classroom dates. We ask that, whenever possible, requests be made one week in advance of the intended pickup date. Films do not circulate one week prior to the date of a booking.
To ensure a film's availability for individual study, instructors should consider placing it on course reserve.
Circulation, reserve, and retrieval policies for films follow our standard circulation policies.
Films available from HIL-CIRAV, HIL-CIRDSK, HIL-GOV, and HIL-GOVCD, and ENG-AV may circulate for one week with the option of one further week's renewal for all patrons.
The Harriet Irving Library provides one combination DVD/VHS station for in-house viewing of films. The station is located in a study room, and as such can accommodate open discussion in tandem with film viewing. This study room can be booked at the Commons Service (formerly Circulation) desk.
UNB Libraries have a limited annual film budget for purchasing DVD and VHS formatted films that serve the teaching and learning objectives of University of New Brunswick and Saint Thomas University departments and faculty members.
We are now accepting purchase requests for consideration under the 2013/2014 film budget. Submissions can be made online at: http://www.lib.unb.ca/requests/film_request_form.php. There is no deadline for submissions this year.
Materials providing broad curricular support are preferred and given priority in selection to ensure maximum use of material. Factors that influence collection decisions include:
For items deemed ineligible for funding through UNB Libraries' film budget or requested after the deadline, there may be other funding avenues. Please consult your departmental liaison librarian.
