Catalog Search Tips
If you are looking for a specific title or name, search the Library Catalog quick search for Audio/Video using 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 in the Catalog. But there are many types of subject searches, such as 'United States history', 'oceanography', 'music' and other areas clearly described by Subject Headings, 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.
