In order to better meet the needs of Rutgers–Newark students, faculty, and staff, all Dana Library media items will be circulated via the Circulation Desk beginning today.

The general circulating media collection—including most DVDs, VHS tapes, and audio CDs—has been relocated to the open stacks in the lower level of the library and can now be freely browsed. Audio cassettes and LPs are housed behind the Circulation Desk and are discoverable via the “Books & Media” tab of the library homepage.

For DVDs, audio CDs, and VHS cassettes, simply take the empty box for the item you want upstairs to the Circulation Desk located in the first floor lobby of the library. Circulation staff will retrieve the item and check it out to you just as they would a book.

For audio cassettes and vinyl LPs, when you discover an item you would like to borrow in the catalog, write down the call number and ask for it at the Circulation Desk.

Faculty requests to purchase new titles to support their teaching will continue to be fielded by Dana Library’s department liaison librarians, and access to resources such as SWANK Digital Campus for streaming media will not be affected by this change.
