Changes to AV Loans at the University of York

In response to popular demand, the University of York Library have changed the loan period for AV materials. It’s now the same as the standard period for ordinary loan items.

Since the introduction of Flexible Loans in October 2012 they have been actively seeking your feedback. They have received and responded to a range of individual enquiries and comments about the loan periods for items in the AV Collection.
In response to your feedback they have changed length of time items in the AV collection so that they operate in the same way as flexible loan items. This means that DVDs will, like books, be borrowable for a 4 week loan period unless they are requested. The new loan periods will be implemented on Monday 11 March.
Items in the AV collection can no longer be booked, but instead a request can be placed on an AV item that is on loan. Screening copies will remain as reference and can be borrowed by screening assistants nominated by departments. For more information about borrowing screening copies, please see the Screening copies guide (PDF  , 428kb).
