Finding Videos & DVDs

To find videos at UNC the simplest method is to perform a Keyword search using your subject term plus the phrase and videorecording.

If you are searching for films by a particular director or actor, remember to put the name in quotation marks.

Example Keyword Searches for Finding Videos at UNC:

  • "lee, ang" and videorecording
  • shakespeare and branagh and videorecording
  • "civil war" and videorecording
  • "streep, meryl" and videorecording

Prospector is also a good source for videos, Denver Public Library's collection is searchable and generally available for Prospector delivery.


WorldCAT allows one to limit the search to videos, either by selecting "Visual Materials" as a format from the Advanced Search screen, or by doing a Basic Search and then selecting the "Visual" tab.
