The Libraries media collection, consisting largely of DVDs and VHS tapes, can be found on the 2nd floor of the HSSE library. This collection supports academic courses taught across the University, but many titles are also of general interest. Check out media items with a Purdue ID for a one-week period. Viewing equipment and headphones are available. Scheduled media items or items on reserve will be at the Hicks UGRL Library iDesk through spring semester 2013.
Timbuktu is the subject of a new book display in the HSSE Library. The display focuses on travel accounts of the city and on Timbuktu as a center of scholarly activity. For more information contact Stewart Saunders.
