Catalog Search

Rutgers Law Library (Newark & Camden) Catalog

Finding Videos

Want to know if the Rutgers Libraries own a particular film?

Enter the title into the QuickSearch Browse search box.

DVDs and VHS cassettes are on shelves on the lower level of Dana Library near the group lounge area. Simply take the empty box for the item you want upstairs to the Circulation Desk located in the first floor lobby of the library. Circulation staff will retrieve the tape, CD or DVD for you and check it out to you just as they would a book.

Most circulating DVDs owned by the Media Center in New Brunswick are eligible for the Rutgers Delivery Service.

Would like to book a title for viewing by your class on a specific date? Just submit the Media Materials Booking Form.

The Libraries may also have what you need available for online viewing. Swank Digital Campus provides online streaming access to feature films for instructional use, while Kanopy provides online streaming access to a large collection of documentaries, as well as independent, foreign, and feature films.

The Libraries also subscribe to Symptom Media, an online mental health education and training film library that contatins over 300 mental health simulations including DSM 5 and ICD guided films and assessment tools.
