Archival Videotapes

Archival masters of selected videotaped campus events will be housed in the Libraries' Special Collections Department. A patron may request a copy of the archival video through the Special Collections Department. Patrons should expect a maximum of two working days for processing the request. The copy will be available in the Media Library using the same patron circulation guidlines as other Media course reserve materials. Wooster Forum events will be videotaped by the Information Technology staff if written permission is granted by the speaker (s). One copy will be made from the archival master and become part of the Media course reserves for the fall semester.
