Recommendations for new titles are welcome and requests can be submitted directly to The MRC Supervisor or to the subject bibliographer by providing in writing the title(s), summary description, running time, and distributor. Acquisitions are made on a rolling basis throughout the year.
The MRC often receives information on new media releases which will be shared with appropriate academic departments.

Previewers are asked for their reactions by completing a brief evaluation form after previewing a title.
The MRC staff will assist in locating and ordering rental films/videos for classroom instruction. Contact the MRC in writing giving the title(s), summary description, use date, and running time. Requests must be submitted a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the use date. The MRC charges back 50% of the rental costs to the requesting department. Catalogs are available for reference in the MRC.
