The Rutgers Libraries own more than 20,000 films, videos, DVDs, and other visual materials, along with more than 100,00 sound recordings, including documentaries and instructional materials of interest to educators.  To identify relevant audio or visual materials, use the following search strategy:

  1. Go to the Library Catalog
  2. Use the Advanced Search mode
  3. Search by author, keyword, title, or subject (or an combination)
  4. Click on the FORMAT box and select "Recorded Sound" or "Visual Materials."

Graduate students and faculty can usually borrow audio or visual materials (the Catalog uses the symbol "Y" in Type/Circulation field to identify items that can be borrowed.  Increasingly, however, audio and visual materials are being purchased in streaming format, allowing online access.
