The SHSU Video Archive—housed on the 4th Floor of AB-IV—consists of VHS tapes covering a wide range of topics and genres.  The University Copyright Committee is presently investigating the possibilities of utilizing these materials within a class setting. At present, the Committee's interpretation of copyright will allow for classroom use and individualized research by University faculty.  Faculty can obtain any of the available titles by submitting a request by either phone or e-mail.  The time frame for which the tapes will be needed should also to noted.

The Archive is arranged alphabetically by artist/title: SHSUVideoArchive
