Hello Daniel Sincell and thank you for your question to the library's
Maryland AskUsNow! service.


Dear Mr. Sincell,

You are correct, that particular video must be used in the Performing Arts
Library between the hours of 10:00-5:00, Monday through Friday. It is part
of the Washington Area Performing Arts Video Archive (WAPAVA) and is one of
only two copies in existence (the other copy is at the main branch (Marin
Luther King) of the DC Public Library). When the library began housing the
WAPAVA collection, one of the things we agreed to was that the videos could
not circulate and could only be handled by library staff.


More information on WAPAVA can be found at:
http://www.lib.umd.edu/PAL/SCPA/WAPAVA/

We don't seem to have any other video recordings of Arcadia. I will alert
the Theatre Librarian and suggest we purchase a copy.

Please let me know if you have any other questions,

Steve Henry
Music Librarian

Question History:

Patron: Please confirm that item listed as

"Arcadia   [videorecording] / Rep Stage presents ; by Tom Stoppard ;
directed by Kasi Campbell.  ... [2005],"

call number: WAP 0125 (vols 1 & 2)

is non-circulating only and therefore not available for check-out.  Item is
found at UMCP Performing Arts Library in the Paged Collections Room.  If
item is indeed non-circulating, please advise regarding video availability
at Towson University.

Thank you for your time and response.

Sincerely,

Daniel Sincell
