VHS (VCR) Support Information

Important Notice about the VHS (VCR) Video Format

Manufacturers have ended the production of VCRs due to the ÔÇťAnalog Sunset." Obtaining VCRs has become difficult and repair is difficult due to lack of available parts. VHS is now considered an obsolete medium.

Due to their demise, VCRs are no longer included in new or renovated classrooms. DVDs will still be able to be played through the computer in all generally-scheduled smart classrooms.

What do you need to do if using VHS tapes in your courses?

If you have VHS tapes used in your classes, you will need to find replacements as soon as possible. You can purchase a DVD for your individual use, search the library's online multimedia collections or submit a library purchase request for a DVD to be added to the library's collection.  The library can also help you search for a replacement. Please remember that all copying and showing of media must follow current copyright law. 

VHS will be completely phased out for Spring 2023.
