Video Resources: Does the library still own DVDs?

We sure do!

The library has a collection of nearly 2500 DVDs available for checkout or classroom use. You can find these titles through I-Share.

Searching I-Share

‚Äč

  • Search by Title to find videos when you are looking for a particular work.
  • Search by Subject to find what videos we own on a given topic.
  • Use Advanced Search to pre-select format limiters for videos (clicking Movie will select all the video formats available)

 

  • Some notes about our collections:
    • Most of our DVDs are available for 2 week checkout. They are located on the lower level of the library, behind the bound periodicals and children's literature collections.
    • We maintain a small collection of DVDs that are checked out at the Circulation Desk - these cannot leave the library except when checked out by faculty.
  • What if I can't find what I want at Elmhurst?

    Search All I-Share Libraries to see materials from 89 other academic and research institutions in Illinois. Items that are not available at Elmhurst but appear in the catalog may be requested directly in I-Share. Please ask a librarian if you need assistance. Items not available through I-Share may be ordered online via Interlibrary Loan. Not all libraries will loan DVDs, but we are certainly willing to try to get them if you need them!
