In order to develop a broad collection to meet CSUN curricular needs, we value faculty Video and DVD recommendations. Faculty can submit an Video/DVD Purchase Recommendation or fill out a Recommendation Form at the Music & Media Service Desk.
Please provide as much information as possible, including the purchasing source if available. Funding usually becomes available in late fall, but suggestions may be submitted at any time. Programs may not be received until the next academic year. On occasion, some titles may be out of print or unavailable for other reasons, but we will try our best to accommodate you. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about the selection process. We appreciate your input!
