There are a number of ways to search the library catalog for videos (by which we mean DVD, VHS, Blu-Ray, and streaming). All of the videos physically owned by the UArts Libraries are in the library catalog.
- Go to library.uarts.edu and click the catalog link at the upper right.
- In the search by: box you can:
- search by Author for directors, choreographers, composers, and performers. Remember to search LAST NAME first, for example: Scorsese, Martin
- search by Title if you know it.
- search by Keyword to find a film in a collection. Put quotation marks around phrases, e.g., “andalusian dog” or “all of me” or “cave of the heart”
- search by Subject. There are lots of subject headings; these are a few suggestions.
feature films operas–film adaptations
documentary films musical films
science fiction films concert films
- In the search in: box, select Video. This will search for all video formats: VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, and streaming.
- Enter your search terms and click Search!
