The Library has over 7,000 DVD videos, 4,000 music CDs, and 1,000 spoken word CD's. The collection has been formulated to support both the instructional and research programs of the university, as well as the cultural and recreational needs of the community. All of our media titles are cataloged and can be retrieved in the the Library Catalog as you would a book, by searching by title, author (composer, director, performer), or subject. With the advanced search, or in TigerSearch, you can limit your results to the media type you are looking for.
DVDs have a loan period of seven days and patrons may borrow up to five titles at a time. Some videos are also on Reserve for class use. The collection is arranged into several sections. Animated, Children's Movies, Features, Foreign Films, and Television shows are shelved separately from the educational videos, which have Library of Congress call numbers. Find Video
