Worcester State University


Instructional Media Services

The Instructional Media Services (IMS) is located in L-207, down the corridor from the Circulation Desk in the 2nd floor lobby. The IMS houses all of the non-print materials owned by the Library or on reserve for course instructors, and includes the following formats: audio compact discs (CDs), and videos/DVDs. The IMS also stores all of the CD-ROM discs and floppy discs that come with some circulating books. For the convenience of library users, we are in the process of placing the discs in the books on the shelves.

A current, valid WSU OneCard ID is required, and must be presented in order to check out any material from the IMS, including non-print reserves. Non-print material does not circulate to students from other schools, but as a courtesy to other Worcester area colleges, we will lend videos to faculty from those schools for a 48-hour period.
