DVD Players Available for Loan at Ball State University Libraries

Ball State University Libraries now provide students with access to Audiovox Portable DVD Players that allows customers to watch DVDs almost anywhere, anytime. These units are available for four-hour loan periods with an optional one-time four hour renewal over the telephone, in person, or online through My Account (PIN required).

There are six units available. Each unit includes an 8” wide LCD monitor and plays CDs and MP3s as well. The players are easy to use and provide quick access to digital technology such as the DVDs and CDs that are part of some students’ textbooks. Students also may borrow from a growing collection of over 2,325 DVD titles that span a wide range of topics, including popular movies.

Each Audiovox Portable DVD Player is checked-out with a carrying case, pair of headphones, a remote control, and an A/V cable to connect to a television or larger screen. The players are portable since each weighs about four pounds in the carrying case.

For information, contact Jacob L. Harris, Ball State University Libraries’ Educational Resources Equipment/Video Supervisor, JLHarris2@bsu.edu, (765) 285-8760.
