Many of the Library's videos and DVDs are shelved in the 2nd and 3rd floor Reading Rooms of Regenstein. Several other campus libraries have video collections, including D'Angelo Law Library, Crerar, Social Services Administration (SSA) and Eckhart. Videos are cataloged in the Library Catalog. Like books, they may be checked out for the entire quarter. Videos in the Law Library have a 14-day loan period with no renewals. Media circulates for 4 hours in SSA.
Finding Films Searching the Catalog
Use the Library Catalog to search for specific films. Use the "Title" option to look films by title. Use the "Author" option for director.
To look for a specific type of film, use the advanced keyword search.
- Select the "Advanced Keyword" tab in the catalog.
- Under "Format" select "Videos". You may also select a specific type of video, such as Blu-Ray, Laserdisk, Video Cassett (VHS), and DVD. However, please be aware that the Library collects videos in all these formats (and houses players for them), so you may limit your results too much this way.
- Add additional search terms, such as an actor (in all fields) or director (as author).
- Select Library location (D'Angelo, Regenstein, etc.) if this is important to you.
