The library has two different collections of movies. Movies in the Classroom Collection are located behind the first floor circulation desk. Students may view these movies in the library, and faculty members may check them out. Movies in the Media Collection are located on the second floor, behind the magazines and newspapers. These movies may be checked out by anyone with a valid SF ID card.
