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 Multi-Media Room, 204.
There are several ways to locate the multimedia formats.
From here you are able to search for campus events and speakers, career services presentations, and specific class lectures. They also maintain a collection of online audio and video resources that you might find useful for legal education on their External Resources for Online Audio & Video page.
Additionally, the library collects videotapes and DVDs for the permanent collection. In the Law Library Catalog, search LC Subject Headings by typing 'video'. The results will contain a list of both videocassettes and DVDs.
You can also conduct an author, title or keyword search and then limit the search by clicking Limit/Sort Search, the blue button at the top of your results screen. Use the pull down menu under Material Type to choose the videocassette format.
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.
Select 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.
