we have three day loans for faculty, with renewal via e-mail or phone.
Online renewal is coming soon.

Hi everyone-

I'm new to the list, and am hoping to make use of the vast expertise
lurking out there!

I'm wondering what people's loan periods are for videorecordings (in
tape or DVD format), in academic libraries. We have three day loans
here, for all primary users, but I'm considering a proposal to
that period for faculty. Does anyone else have longer loan periods for
faculty and/or graduate students? If so, how long? If there is a
loan period, is it for longer than 3 days? Three days just seems
restrictive especially if someone is using the video for research
purposes. Also, do people allow online renewals? It's generally
that online renewals would disturb our booking system for faculty
showings, but I'm interested to hear if others have implemented this

Thanks for any feedback you may have-
