Non-print Media Services, the site for most of the University's film collection, has two separate collections: circulating and non-circulating. 

"UMCP HBK Non-print Media Srvs Desk - Circ Collection" means the film is part of the circulating collection. 

"UMCP HBK Non-print Media Srvs Desk" means the film is part of the non-circulating collection. 

Non-Circulating Collection: This collection contains over 25,000 items on DVD, VHS, and older formats including 16mm film and U-Matic. Films may be viewed in-house during our open hours. Faculty and staff may borrow items to show outside the library for instruction purposes, generally for 2-3 days. To request an external loan, please fill out this form.

Circulating Collection: In 2010, a group of students secured funding from the Student Government Association, the Graduate Student Association, and matching funds from the Libraries to build a new collection of films, documentaries and TV programs that can be borrowed for free by UMD students and other members of the University Community. As of January 2013, the collection has nearly 2,300 titles and continues to grow. Circulating DVDs may be borrowed for a 3-day loan period and may be renewed once.
