All audio, video, and digital material is checked out to teachers in the same way that books are checked out. NOTE: Some material is also useful for student research; however, we encourage students to use the media at school when possible. A few items ($150 videos, for example) will not be checked out to students, but students may view such material in the library. The teacher must request that a student be allowed to check out any video, audio, or digital reference material. Videos, DVDs, and CD-ROMS are arranged in the file drawers alphabetically by subject. The three letters underlined in each title/annotation below represent where the video is located within its subject area. The top drawer of the black file cabinet next to the video file cabinet contains teacher guides for many of our videos. The guides are arranged alphabetically by title and are bar coded for check-out. Last updated 09-29-06 Newest Additions to the Catalog
