The Nursing faculty annually reviews Library holdings to ensure clinical accuracy of content.
Individual video monitors, cassette and CD/DVD players as well as computer workstations are available on the first floor of the library for student and faculty use. A video viewing room is also available for group viewing. The Library has an audiovisual distribution center that delivers equipment to classrooms throughout the main campus and the west campus. The Library’s faculty “booking” system allows instructors to reserve and pick-up AV materials for classroom viewing. Audiovisual materials and equipment can also be delivered to off-campus classrooms and regional centers.
Faculty may place specific materials on reserve at the Circulation Desk for students. Reserve materials ensure that all students will have access to reference materials or other high-demand items.
