There are two primary ways to access films or videos through the library:
1. Physical copies of DVDs. These are mainly located in the 1st floor, TFDL behind the Information Desk. There are a few shelves of DVDs that can be borrowed. Some physical films will be located at other branch libraries, including Doucette, High Density Library, and the Military Museums.
To search the physical collection, choose the Advanced Search option. Click on “UofC Collections” and ensure the Search Scope is “Physical Collections.” From there, select “Audio Visual” for the item type before searching for your title or topic.
2. Access the film through an online streaming video database. These include:
- Education in Video
- Theatre in Video
- Dance Online
- World History in Video
- Films on Demand
- Ethnographic Video Online
To search for both physical DVDs and online video content, choose the Advanced Search option. Under “Quick Search,” select “Audio Visual” for the item type before searching for your title or topic.
