University Library, Music and Media Center: The FLIC Media Borrowing Program

Music & Media Center

The FLIC Media Borrowing Program

About the Film Library Intercampus Consortium (FLIC) 
Media Borrowing Program:

Most Academic Library media centers do not lend media through standard Interlibrary Loan.  However, the CSU LA Library does participate in the FLIC media borrowing program, enabling our faculty to request films, videos, and DVDs from participating CSU Libraries. Faculty should submit FLIC borrowing requests 7 days in advance of the use date, in order to allow for delivery from the other campus. Up to 3 items may be borrowed from a participating FLIC library for 24 hour use.  To request a VHS video, DVD, or 16mm film from a FLIC participating campus, please fill out a request form at the Music & Media Center Service Desk (Library North, 3rd floor) or contact Laura Kaiser Pare', FLIC Coordinator, at 343-4093.
