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 the Library Catalog. Streaming video is not included; search the Library Catalog 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.
To find video, search the Library Catalog and refine your search by choosing your preferred format (VHS, DVD, Streaming Video) from the filters to the left of your search results.
Use Advanced Search to construct more complex searches with multiple keywords.
The Media Collections Guide is 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 Library 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 topic like 'race issues in films about labor' go to Advanced Search where you can limit to your preferred format and enter 'race' and 'labor' as your keywords.
