  • To find physical videos and DVDs, you will use the Library Catalog.
  • If you know the title of the material, use the Title browse or search options and type in the name of the video or DVD.
  • If you aren't looking for a known title, start with the Keyword search option. For example, to find videos and DVDs starring Katharine Hepburn, search for: katharine hepburn and (video* or dvd*). Use the asterisk to get videorecording, videocassette, and other words that start with video.
  • If you want to get a general idea of the types of videos and DVDs the library has, try Keyword searches such as drama and (video* or dvd*).
  • You may also want to try Subject searches for terms like comedy films and feature films.
  • If you are not finding what you expect, please ask us for assistance.  
Once you have found the material you need, pay close attention to the call number and location located at the bottom of the screen. Most DVDs, Blu-Ray disks, and VHS video tapes will be located in the basement in Joyner Library. Some video titles and most CDs are located in the Music Library.
