The TCU Library houses a media library of DVD/VHS videos and offers access to online (streaming) videos in addition.
Search for any DVD, VHS or Streaming videos in the Media Library using the library catalog “Format” selections (suggestions below).
Helpful hint: call numbers must be presented to Music/Media Library staff to retrieve Media Library (DVD/VHS) video recordings. The library catalog and FrogScholar show these call numbers plus “location” links.
Other video-finding options
Suggestions for video catalog searches
Select desired format from the Format drop-down box
Select “Title words” and enter title information, if known (try “Words anywhere” if no results)
Select "Words anywhere" and enter topic words such as global warming, teenagers or war
Select "Author words" and enter the name of a featured person, director or publisher, if known
Select "Subject words" for films that were originally books and enter adaptations (use plural or adaptation*)
Use the search string "feature films" or "motion pictures" for non-documentary (leisure, fun, rainy day, saw-it-in-the-theater) films
For greater specificity use quotation marks to keep terms in a phrase together, for example - "global warming".
Use the * (asterisk) to allow for alternate word beginnings, endings, or single characters, for example - teen* (teens, teenagers, teenaged...); wom*n* (woman, women, woman's, women's).
