Frequently Asked Questions

A list of the library's most frequently asked questions
(aside from "Where is the bathroom?")

I need to watch a video. How can I do that? Could I watch the video at home on my computer?
Videos come from a number of different sources. Most of them – but not all – can be viewed at home on your computer. The following are the possible ways to view videos:
  • Your instructor shows a video in class. If you wish to view videos shown in class again at a later time, come to the second floor of the library to do so.
  • Your instructor puts a video on reserve in the library. Videos on reserve are available on the second floor. They are usually unavailable for checkout, but can be watched in a study room or on a computer. Videos on reserve are available on a first come-first served basis.
  • Videos are on electronic reserve. Videos on electronic reserve may originate from the library catalog or from a streaming server system called Panopto. Links to these videos are in your syllabus, in your BlackBoard class or on the Reserves page of the library by instructor name. Your instructor will provide this information to you. User name or login name and password are the same as those used when logging in to BlackBoard.
