The easiest way to find out whether or not our library has a film or television series is by searching our Geotom Catalog, Change the drop down box from "words & phrases" to "title", enter the title of the DVD you're looking for, and search.  Once you've located the DVD, make note of the Call Number.

Our DVD Collection is split into three categories: Documentaries, Foreign Films, & Entertainment. You will be able to tell which one your DVD falls into by looking at the call number.     

Documentaries have a Library of Congress Call number. For help reading & understanding LC Call numbers click here. These DVD's are organized by topic.

Foreign Films have a call number that begins with the letters FOR, followed by a single letter.  All Foreign Films are shelved alphabetically by title. If you want to see a list of films we own in Arabic, Russian, Chinese, German, Spanish, or French; click here and then click on the language you're interested in.   

Entertainment DVD's have a call number that begins with the letters ENT. All Entertainment DVDs are shelved alphabetically by title. 

The video section is right next to the reference desk so if you're having trouble figuring out where your DVD is located, just ask!
