Music, Movies, and More!
Hekman Library is pleased to announce the expansion of MeLCat borrowing to include DVDs, VHS, CDs, and audio books. When we joined MeLCat in the fall of 2012 we did not open up our AV collections for borrowing. As a result, our Calvin users were not able to request such materials. But as of April 2017 our library users have been free to request most AV materials that they find in a MeLCat search in addition to books.
For your reference, here is the MeLCat rule regarding circulation of AV materials: "MeLCat’s optional loan period between libraries allows 17 days for delivery, pickup and use of the item and its return. The length of loan to patrons is 7 days with no renewal. Only music audio formats, videos (VHS) and DVDs may use this optional loan rule."
