Where did the Videotapes and DVDs go?

In order to better serve our moving image users, the Videotape and DVD Collection have been moved to Waldo Library. You'll find them in Access Services on the main floor of the library. Faculty are strongly encouraged to make advanced reservations for titles they wish to use in the classroom. The Advanced Reservation form can be found here: wmich.edu/library/forms/vfr.php
