The Purdue Libraries media collection is located in the Humanities, Social Science, and Education Library (HSSE) on the second floor. It houses over 5,000 items of DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, and other items. The media collection is directly adjacent to the Microforms Area.
Media items in Purdue's media collection may be placed on a media scheduling hold by Purdue faculty and staff. Instructors can fill out the web form and request media items to be pulled and placed behind the HSSE circulation desk for retrieval. Follow the link below to fill out the form to request items.
In addition to the many of physical items in our media collection, Purdue also has an ever growing digital collection. Purdue Libraries have made increasing our digital streaming collection a priority with subscriptions to digital streaming media services such as Ambrose Digital and Kanopy. Follow the link below for more information.
In HSSE library, we currently have several places to view media items. In addition to the ITaP computers on the first floor, all of which can play DVDs, we have four places on the second floor for individual and groups to view media items.
