About the Guides
These Guides allow browsing of broad categories of some of the videos and DVDs in the Rutgers libraries collections. See below for tips on searching for specific resources in our Library Catalog. Streaming video is not included; search our catalog or HERE for titles in that format.
Please go here for a monthly list of new media acquisitions. New acquisitions can be requested at any time by contacting your library liaison, or by filling out our Booking Form if you intend to use the title for a specific class.
Catalog Search Tips
If you are looking for a specific title or name, search the Library Catalog quick search using the tab for Books and Media and a Keyword from the title and/or name.
Advanced Search where you can limit format to 'Visual Materials offers the most complete access to our holdings.
The Media Guides found here are for browsing subject areas that are not well addressed by subject headings. But there are many types of subject searches, such as 'United States history', 'oceanography', 'music' and other areas that are done better in the Catalog.
Full text searching of the abstracts, contents, and summaries found in the Catalog is a also a very useful strategy for complex topics. For a search like 'race issues in films about labor' go to Advanced Search where you can limit to 'Visual Materials' and put 'race and labor' in WORDS anywhere.
Catalog Search for Streaming Video
Searching for online video in our catalog can be accomplished at any time in the Advanced Search page by changing the Type-Circ? menu to VIDEOSTR-N.
Here is a shortcut version of that search.
