Films and videorecordings can be booked by UCI faculty and graduate students for UCI classroom showing, classroom preparation, or research. Videorecordings and films can also be booked by staff instructors listed on the official UCI Class Schedule for the current quarter.
As of Fall 2015, up to 5 MRC media items (DVD videos, Videocassettes, etc.) may be checked out and renewed once by UCI faculty, staff and students. UCI students must be enrolled in the current quarter or summer session to borrow materials. All other borrowers may only view materials on-site. A valid library card is required for viewing privileges.
For information about MRC media lending policies, please visit the MRC Collections Lending Policies Web page.
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.
