Interlibrary Loan: If there is a print book you need which we don't have available, we may be able to get it from another library.  Request the book through the library catalog or speak to a librarian for help.

Searching for Films

Search the Catalog to find dvds or streaming videos.  Limit your search by Material Type, to Audio/Visual Material.

DVDS are located by the Service Desk in the library and can be checked out for one week.  Electronic videos can be streamed online.
