About the IMC

You can search exclusively the contents of the IMC by:

  1. Go to Advanced Search in the library catalog.
  2. Type in your search.
  3. Change the Collection limiter to "IMC - Periodicals/Media Desk, 2nd Floor."

Planning Ahead

Library staff process requests every business day, and will send an email confirmation of your request. If you do not receive a confirmation within 2 business days, please call 315-312-3560.

During the regular semesters, video business hours are:

  • Monday - Tuesday 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
  • Wednesday - Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Because many videos are used in class by several instructors, we strongly encourage scheduling the video as far in advance as possible to avoid time conflicts.

IMC Material on Reserve

Faculty may request that IMC material be put on reserve for a semester. Faculty who want to use reserve material may only borrow it for 3 hours. IMC material on reserve cannot be delivered.

Student Use

Students may borrow IMC materials for the full reserve period assigned to those materials.
