Q. May I borrow sound or video recordings?

Answer

Some sound and video recordings may be borrowed, depending on their content and your patron type. As a general rule, you will be able to determine whether an item may be borrowed by reading the call number. CDs and LPs in the Sound Recordings Archives, course reserve CDs, and CMA Recital recordings do not circulate. However, you may listen to any recording in the Music Library. If the call number begins:

MUSICCD (compact discs)

  • BGSU students - 3-day loan, 3 renewals
  • BGSU faculty & staff - 2-week loan, 3 renewals

MUSIC12/33 (12-inch, long-play records; vinyl)

  • BGSU students - 3-day loan, 3 renewals
  • BGSU faculty & staff - 2-week loan, 3 renewals

MUSICDVD or MUSIC VHS (videos)

  • BGSU students - 3-day loan, no renewals
  • BGSU faculty - 2-week loan, 3 renewals
  • BGSU staff - 3-day loan, 3 renewals

Basically, if the call number is NOT preceded by the word "MUSIC" and begins with letters or numbers, (CD, 12/33, 10/45, 10/33, etc.) the recording is part of the holdings of the Sound Recordings Archives. SRA recordings do not circulate.
