Library Media for Instructional Use
This page explains the many ways faculty can find, get, and use library media materials for their classes.
Check out physical media from the library
PCC Library’s media collection circulates for six weeks to PCC users. If something from the library collection is checked out or otherwise unavailable, please contact us. It is possible that we can get the video for you through Summit or interlibrary loan.
Put an item on reserve
Instructors can place DVDs on reserve at the campus of their choice. Items on reserve can remain there for a full term or up to three years. This includes instructor/department-owned DVDs as well as DVDs that are part of the library collection. See Course Reserves for Faculty for additional information.
Get help from Liaison Librarians
PCC Subject Liaison Librarians can help you find appropriate media for your courses. The Library provides access to streaming videos, and your subject liaison librarian can suggest additions to our available Kanopy titles.
