Audio Visual Booking Policy

Staff (Day)

Day instructors may borrow audio visual materials and equipment for the usual loan period of one day.  Longer periods can easily be arranged with the AV Services’ staff in attendance. 

Staff (Evening/Saturday)

Evening/Saturday instructors should book all audio visual material and equipment in advance.  All material and equipment must be picked up and returned the same day.  If instructors require overnight or weekend use of material, for previewing purposes, this can easily be arranged with the AV Services’ staff in attendance. Longer loan periods must be arranged, in advance, with the AV Services Supervisor.


Students may borrow audio visual materials and equipment for same day use. Requests for Overnight/over weekend use require an Instructor’s or Department Head’s authorization.  Authorization in the way of a phone call, e-mail, memo or student listing is acceptable.

Borrowing from other Audio Visual sources

The Library can borrow materials from other collections for use on the main campus.  Several catalogues are available from various libraries -- eg. Universities of Manitoba & Winnipeg, the Department of Health, etc. We must adhere to the policies that each library has for outside borrowers.

Requests require 2 to 5  working days for processing and shipping arrangements.

ALL requests MUST be in writing (forms are available).  Requests may be dropped off, faxed or mailed to AV Services.

The following information is required when booking titles from other sources:
Title of material, name of the library or organization from which it is available, and the days you wish to show the material.

A signature is required since shipping charges are involved (Library absorbs cost).
