Start with the Library Catalog from the library home page, http://library.du.edu. To find DVDs by subject type keywords into the Compass Catalog search box, for example: baseball

From the results screen you can limit for resource type on the left side of the results page:

If you know the name of a specific film, you can search for it by title

You can also search by genres as keywords, such as:

Action and adventure films
Biographical films
Documentary television programs
Feature films
Historical films
Romance films
Science fiction films
Sports films
Thrillers (motion pictures)

You can limit to Academy Award nominees or winners by adding “Academy award” to your keyword search.

Note the call number for the film. The DVDs are located on the upper level of the main library, at the top of the main staircase, near the Loft.  You can also use the "Request It" button to put the DVD on hold.

If you need assistance with this or finding any other type of material for your research or pleasure, please contact the Research Center at 303-871-2905 or use our email form or chat box by clicking on the ASK US button on the library’s homepage http://library.du.edu/ The Research Center is open seven days a week and until midnight Sunday-Wednesday.
