The audiovisual collection consists of non-print material, including:
We have an excellent collection of documentary videos; many are based on novels and many are in foreign languages. We have a smaller cllection of 16mm films, slides and audiotapes. The audiotapes range from poetry to a series of American history tapes. Our slide collection supports the art and language curriculum as well as other Library of Congress subjects. DVDs and videos are the majority of the audiovisual collection.
Unique highlights of our audiovisual collection include many Bergman and Max VonSydow videos and all 37 plays from Shakespeare's BBC series on DVD. We also have the Nobel Conference audio and videotapes from 1979 to the present.
All videos, DVDs, films, slides and audiocassettes are cataloged in MnPALS, the library's catalog.

Two webcams from the Career Center are on reserve in the Audiovisual Department; they may be checked out for 24 hours. A webcame with Podcast Capture software is available for students to use at the library in room 103B (lower level).
The Library Audio Visual Department is the acquisition center for all campus DVD/Video purchases. This campus policy was instituted to ensure licensing agreements were appropriate for classroom face-to-face teaching, and to help control duplication of titles and inventory. These videos will be cataloged and available to faculty in all departments. Additionally, these may be checked out to academic departments on a long-term basis.
While video recordings with Public Performance Rights usually cost significantly more than those for Home Use Only, the Library will make every reasonable effort to purchase materials with Public Performance Rights or at least with Educational Performance rights in order to ensure compliance with Copyright laws and regulations. Faculty specifying Home Use Only version on their requests for video recordings or supplying Home Use Only video recordings will be informed of the policy and provided with the prices of the Public Performance versions whenever possible.
Your library acquisitions budget may be used for DVD/Video purchases. Many distributors offer discounts for these acquisitions. Contact your library liaison and/or Mark Kump at extension 7571 or email@example.com.
