Finding Films, Videos, & Video Games
The Film & Video Collection includes standard DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, videotapes, 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 100,000 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 and / or limit by year or other categories. Below are several links that will help you browse the collection online.
If you’re not finding what you need, you are welcome to recommend a title for purchase. If your requested material is for instruction or research, please specify as those requests are prioritized. Individual streaming media titles which are not a part of our subscription databases are licensed in support of distance education, when available.
