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 and LENS.
