Finding Videos

Videotapes, DVDs, CDs, and other digital media are available for patron use in the law library. The library has three DVD/Videocassette viewers in the Micromedia Room, 204. 

There are several ways to locate the multimedia formats. 

The law school technology department posts and maintains a collection of streaming videos.  From the main Law School website, click on Multimedia Library in the upper right corner.

From here you are able to search for campus events and speakers, career services presentations, and specific class lectures. 

Additionally, the library collects videotapes and DVDs for the permanent collection. In the Law Library Catalog, search LC Subject Headings by typing 'video collection'. The results will contain a list of both videocassettes and DVDs. 

You can also conduct an author, title or keyword search and then limit your results by using the pull down menu to choose Law - video/DVD items only. 

The law school tapes many campus events and classroom presentations that do not get posted to the streaming video site nor added to the permanent collection. These items can be found by doing a Course Reserves Search on the Law Library Catalog. 

Enter the class name, professor name, or the department hosting the event. The results will include both media and non-media items. The description of the retrieved records will indicate the material format. 

The library also has a collection of legally related feature films that you can browse at our Check it Out: Movies at the Law Library guide.

If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact a reference librarian or the Circulation Desk.
