Popular DVDs Relocate

If you’ve been looking for the Popular DVD Collection lately with no success, there’s a very good reason—it’s been relocated. We still have the same great movies as we’ve always had—they’re just in a different place.

The collection, widely used for entertainment and educational purposes, was relocated to Information Commons over the summer during a period of renovation.

In addition to the move, another change with the DVD Collection is how you access them. Due to space constraints, we no longer have an area to display the DVD cases. However, you can find out what’s available by accessing the collection via the online catalog on a computer, mobile device, or on  one of our new catalog kiosks, located the Circulation and Information Commons Desks, and on all three floors (atrium or breezeway).
