The Periodicals, Videos and Microforms Unit (PVM) of Access Services is located on the lower level of the Hayden Library. It provides access to these collections: Current/Bound Periodicals, Newspapers, Microforms, and Videos.
Access to PVM is available any time the Hayden Library is open.
Current/Bound Periodicals and Newspapers
In this area you will find current domestic and foreign newspapers (usually the last three months) along with journals from 2005 – Present. Hayden Library holds over 1,500 current journal, magazine, and newspaper subscriptions. Periodicals are located by call number, and newspapers are located alphabetically by title.
East Asian and Southeast Asian Journals are interfiled with the regular East Asian and Southeast Asian circulating collection.
Many materials that would be too costly to acquire and store in print are available on microfilm (reels), and microfiche (sheets). The Hayden Microforms area holds such items as the ERIC Document (ED) collection, monograph microforms, foreign and domestic college catalogs back to 1989, archived newspapers, and any periodicals listed in the catalog with Microforms holdings (look for "FILM" or "FICHE" as part of the item's call number). All items may not leave the area, but readers and scanners are available for viewing these items.
Hayden Library houses a large collection of popular, documentary, and instructional videotapes and DVDs. These are located at the end of the shelves containing the Current/Bound Periodicals. Most are available for a 7 day loan to current ASU affiliates or Community Card borrowers. Course Reserve videos are located at the Information and Check Out desk on the Concourse/Entrance Level of Hayden Library.
PVM also has stations equipped with monitors, VCRs, and DVD players. These stations are provided to support the academic needs of ASU faculty, staff, and students, in particular for Course Reserve in-house viewing. Use of the viewing stations, and in-house viewing of videos, is therefore limited to ASU affiliates only. Videos are available to be checked out at the Information and Check Out desk for personal viewing to any patron with checkout privileges. All videos must be checked out in order to be viewed in-house and headphones are required. You may bring your own headphones or check out a set from the Information and Check Out desk located on the Concourse/Entrance Level of Hayden Library.
