Finding Films, Videos, & Video Games

The Film & Video Collection includes standard DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, videotapes, console-based video games, and 16mm films which span a wide range of disciplines.  It is a closed-stacks collection, which means media materials are not in a publicly accessible area and must be browsed using DELCAT Discovery.  Once you have identified titles of interest, staff will retrieve the items for you.  Some items (many VHS and all 16mm film) are housed in the Library Annex, an on-campus off-site storage facility.  These items may be requested via the Library Annex Request form, and will be delivered to the Film & Video Collection within one business day.  The requester will be contacted upon its arrival.

The University of Delaware Library also subscribes to streaming media databases, which provide access to over 70,000 eVideos.

When searching DELCAT Discovery for Film & Video Collection items, you may use the Format facets at the left-hand side of the screen after performing your search to choose from available media formats (including eVideos) and / or limit by year or other categories. Below are several links that will help you browse the collection online.
