Keep in mind, too, that the library has both DVDs and streaming video. The circulating DVD collection contains more than 3,000 items, including non-fiction films, documentaries, and feature films. The videos are shelved on the north side of the main floor in our Fine Arts wing. Non-fiction and feature film videos are also findable in OneSearch. Search by Title to locate the Call number of the video. You can also search by keyword for a topic, director, or series. Filter your results to video for streaming video and DVDs or filter to DVD for physical DVDs.
