GENERAL INFORMATION Purpose The Audiovisual Library is maintained for the specific purpose of furnishing agencies, organizations, and individuals with health education media that can be useful for public education, professional education, and school programs. It is not possible to supply all the media needed for educational programs throughout the state. Health departments, schools, colleges, hospitals, and other organizations are urged to purchase media items for which there is frequent or regularly recurring use.

Who May Borrow Any responsible individual in Texas may borrow media from the collection. There is no charge other than payment of return mailing and insurance. Media from this library cannot be sent outside of Texas. To be eligible for library services, you must submit a signed Statement of Responsibility form (http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/avlib/forms.shtm) indicating that you have read and agree to abide by all the rules and regulations of the library and that you accept financial responsibility for the media you borrow. If you do not have this form on file, please complete it and mail or fax it to the library before you place your next order. Only one signed form is necessary.

Types of Media The types of media in the collection include VHS videocassettes, DVDs, CD-ROMs, audio CDs, books, and audiovisual models. Most of these are evaluated and acquired by the various units within the Texas Department of State Health Services. Items in the collection are for free loan only and are not available for sale.

How to Order Media When possible, borrowers should submit a written request for media. The Audiovisual Library provides a Media Order Blank (http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/avlib/forms.shtm) for this purpose. All of the information must be completed on the Media Order Blank. The order form must be signed. The Audiovisual Library also accepts telephone requests between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday: (512) 776-7260, toll free: 1-888-963-7111 ext. 7260, or you may fax your order anytime to fax: (512) 776-7474 or e-mail to [email protected] For borrowers outside of Austin, orders should be received by the Audiovisual Library at least four days in advance of the show date. This requirement allows for processing and shipment. Austin borrowers have two options to receive media. Programs may be picked up and returned at the Audiovisual Library in the Warehouse, Room 115, 1111 North Loop, Austin. Please call for specific directions for locating the library. If the items are available, they may be reserved and picked up during one visit. Programs may also be shipped. The borrower is responsible for payment of the return mailing and insurance. The loan period is for a maximum of 10 days unless other special arrangements can be made. Unless the 10 days are specifically requested, media will be scheduled for five days. Group together all items needed on the same dates. Include the catalog numbers for all items. Several items are available in different media formats, such as VHS videocassette and DVD. The catalog numbers distinguish the format and are very important. Borrowers are limited to eight media titles for a given loan period in order to provide maximum access to the collection by the greatest number of borrowers. New clients may check out a maximum of three items on their first order. Plan ahead and check your calendar before ordering. Reservations are accepted up to a year in advance of the show date. Do not schedule items to be received or returned on holidays or weekends. Unless you specify otherwise, any media requested but not available on the dates specified will be booked for the first available date or a similar title will be scheduled for the requested use dates. If you need to cancel these items, do so before the ship date indicated.

Confirmation letters, e-mails or faxes list the titles available, the ship or pick-up date, the date the items must be returned, and the titles not available. Check this information carefully and telephone the Audiovisual Library before the scheduled ship date if any corrections are needed.

Copyright Restrictions Media in the collection cannot be duplicated or televised without prior written permission from the copyright owner. Media cannot be shown for commercial purposes, nor can an attendance fee be charged for their showing. Violations of federal copyright law will result in the immediate suspension of Audiovisual Library privileges and prosecution by the copyright owner can result in financial penalties and/or jail.

Borrower Responsibility Media may not be lent by the borrower to others. The borrower accepts responsibility for return shipping costs and for the prompt return of media items, loss or damage beyond repair, copyright compliance, and determining appropriate audiences. Media items are in great demand so it is extremely important to return them on the scheduled date. Any borrower having three (3) late returns will have their Audiovisual Library privileges suspended. No further confirmed orders will be shipped to borrowers with materials still out that are two weeks or more late being returned. Willful failure to return borrowed media upon request will be viewed as theft of state property in violation of Section 31.03, Texas Penal Code, the conviction of which could, depending on value, result in a fine not to exceed $500.00 (Class C Misdemeanor), to confinement up to 10 years and a fine up to $10,000 (Third Degree Felony). Items reserved for pick-up that are not picked up or canceled will be returned to stock and will count as a late penalty against the borrower's record. The borrower is financially responsible for borrowed media until its return to the Audiovisual Library. Borrowers will be billed for any lost or damaged media.

Returning Media Return items on or before the scheduled return date. If you need to extend a reservation, telephone the Audiovisual Library at (512) 776-7260 and it will be extended once if there are no other reservations. Extensions should be kept to a minimum. Borrowers in Austin return media items to the Audiovisual Library. An outdoor drop box is located near the Library entrance to return items after closing. Borrowers who had their programs shipped to them are responsible for payment for the return shipping costs and insurance. Videocassettes should be rewound before return. A condition check is made after each circulation. Return all supplemental printed material such as study guides with the media. Return all video cases. Such material not returned will cause borrowers to be billed for replacement or a late penalty will be assessed. Pack media items in the same shipping containers (bubble envelopes or cardboard boxes) in which they were received. Return the packing list with the item and indicate usage and any condition problems. A return address label is provided. Items will be shipped by Lone Star Overnight. You are not required to return them in the same manner but a traceable courier service (UPS, FedEx, Lone Star Overnight) is encouraged. Unless otherwise specified, insure each video or DVD for $200; models should be insured for $100 each; and books, CD-ROMs, and audio CDs should be insured for $25 each.
