Using a film to teach a class? Contact the library media technician and book ahead to ensure availability. DVDs and Blu-rays may also be ordered for classroom use from external sources, such as other post-secondary libraries and non-profit organizations.

If there is a film you would like the library to purchase, please email the library media technician with the following information:

  • Title
  • Format (Blu-ray, DVD, streaming, etc.)
  • Date you need it for
  • Class you need it for

In such circumstances, we will do our best to acquire it for you, though that may not always be possible.

Your Liaison Librarian can help you source and locate appropriate media for your courses.
