Video interfiling project completed.
Student Assistant Mahima Jacob spent part of her reading break moving videos in the library's media collection.
Alloway Library’s videorecording collection consists of over 4100 items in VHS and DVD formats. Following consultation with other media librarians, students and faculty the formats are now interfiled on the same shelves in the Audio-Visual Room on the upper level. Also included in the integration project were several dozen videorecordings with Dewey call numbers which are being assigned new Library of Congress call numbers. By integrating three collections into one, Alloway Library has made it easier for researchers to access visual media on a given topic.
