As an instructor, how do I request a new video for DU CourseMedia?
If you are an instructor, email the library reserves department at firstname.lastname@example.org. When making the request, please ensure to provide as much detail as possible about the video, including date, director, and language. Also, be sure to search the repository before making your request. There is a chance that your video has already been requested by another instructor in the past
