Library Acquires Videos from Online Media Library in Academic Technology

Over the summer the WKU Libraries acquired all of the videos from Academic Technology in Tate Page Hall (referred to as Online Media Library, or way back as Third District Film Library). We are in the process of adding these titles to our collection. The videotapes are frequently requested, and we have made arrangements for additional staffing to expedite assimilating the titles into the Main Library collection.

If you need one that is not currently available via TOPCAT through normal check-out procedures at the Circulation Desk, we would appreciate having at least 48 hours’ notice so that we can process the video and any supporting materials for class use. We can locate with the identification number used by Academic Technology to speed the process and make these media readily available. We know that many titles are heavily used and that faculty depend on these for enhancing classroom instruction.

The Circulation Desk can take the requested video number and we will work with them to process it for you.

Thanks for your understanding and help in this transition.
