Films and videorecordings are loaned to UCI faculty and graduate students for UCI classroom instruction, preview or research. Videorecordings being previewed or used for research are subject to immediate recall if needed for classroom showing. Videorecordings and films are loaned to UCI staff for UCI classroom instruction only. All other borrowers may view materials for on-site use only. A valid UCI library card is required for viewing privileges.
Due to copyright or purchase restrictions, films and videorecordings cannot be broadcast or electronically transmitted in any way, and they may not be used for group recreational or fund-raising programs. Please contact the MRC Desk Manager with questions about showing films or videorecordings outside the classroom. The borrower is responsible for following UCI copyright guidelines.
Booking requests for classroom showings must be received two business days in advance. Specific booking dates for each item are required. This will assist us to protect your booking and accommodate multiple bookings for the same item when possible. Eligible borrowers may request items to be delivered via the UCI Libraries Document Delivery Services (DDS).
The borrower assumes responsibility for actual replacement costs for any lost or damaged media items. Actual replacement cost will be determined by the appropriate Subject Bibliographer. Charges for lost or damaged non-print material will include a billing charge and processing costs if necessary.
The MRC does not loan equipment for use outside the UCI Libraries. The MRC equipment is for use with MRC and ILL materials only. Users who need media equipment for personal, departmental or classroom use can contact Classroom Technology Support, which supplies media equipment to the campus.
