The CDs and DVDs in Clifford Whitworth Library have moved!

16 May 2017

Andy tells you about the new location for audio-visual resources in the Library.

Our CDs and DVDs are now in a much better and more obvious location – on Level 2 of Clifford Whitworth Library, just in front of the link bridge to the Level 2 Extension. This means that they are now very close to the Arts and Media bookstock in the Extension. Please remember though that they are not just for Arts & Media use – there are non-fiction DVDs relevant to many subject areas in the collection. Also you may wish to borrow feature films or music CDs for your own entertainment – most items here are available to borrow. read more
