The Thomas Jefferson Library serves as a back-up and has a limited number of tapes for some video instruction courses. The videos are only available on a first-come, first-served basis; you will need a valid student identification card to check out tapes for three days or to view them in the Libraries. The Libraries issue fines for overdue videos and replacement costs for videos not returned. NOTE: Student assistants in the Libraries are sometimes unfamiliar with the VIP program and the video tapes. If you have questions, please request assistance from the Reference Librarians.

If you have any questions you may contact us by phone at (314) 516-5399.
