Study Spaces on Campus
DVDs are available for check-out while Penrose Library is under construction. You may request specific DVDs in storage at the Hampden Center and expect about a two-hour turnaround time. We also have a “Grab and Go DVD Cart” with a selection for browsing and checkout. Staff literally “grab” DVDs by the box for inclusion on the cart, resulting in a random collection of feature films, television shows, and documentaries. The DVDs are roughly sorted, with films on one side of the cart and documentaries on the other. We swap out the DVDs every week or two, so keep checking to see what is new on the cart!
To access items at The Hampden Center, use the Request It button on the Penrose Library home page to have them brought to campus for you. Next to any item in the online catalog with a location of "Hampden Center" you will see a Request It button. Click on the button and follow the steps to make a request. Your items will be retrieved for you and brought to the Access Services desk (circulation desk). An email will be sent to you when your items are ready for pick up.
The Request It button works for all items in the online catalog. Use this service for items that are Available (not checked out) to save time searching in the stacks. Use Request It also when an item IS checked out. Penrose can request the item for you from another library using Prospector or Interlibrary Loan.
If you have questions or need assistance, please ask the staff at the Access Services desk (circulation desk) or the Research Center...just Ask Us!Categories:
