Searching for a Specific Film

If you have a specific movie you are looking for, type the title of the movie into the Library Search bar on our homepage. Make sure you have selected the “Videos” icon listed below the search bar. The search will be more accurate if you put the title in quotation marks, such as "Fahrenheit 9/11".

Once you click on the search icon, the movie should appear near the top of the search results if it is a film that we have in our collection.

To locate the film in the library, you will want to write down the call number of the item which is listed where it says “Available at Munday Library Media Collection (CALL #)” If you need help locating the item, please ask the library assistant at the front desk.

If we do not have that film in our collection, you may receive a “No Records Found” message such as the one below.  If you would like to suggest that the library purchase a video, fill out this form.  

Searching for Films by Topic

If you are looking for a film about a certain topic or keyword, enter the topic/keyword into the Library Search bar on our homepage. Make sure you have selected the “Videos” icon listed below the search bar.

If you would like to limit your results to show only films that are online or only films that are physically in the library, you can do so on the right side of the Search Results screen where it says “Show Only.”

Browsing for Films

If you are not sure what film you would like to watch and simply want to browse the films that are available to you at the Munday Library, there are two ways you can do this:

To browse the physical collection of DVDs, go to the first floor of the library. All DVDs that are available for check-out will be located in the white bookcases near the North Reading Room and the Global Digital Classrooms.
To browse films that are available online, go to our homepage and click on the “eResources Directory” link.

Once on the databases page, click on the link that says Videos (Streaming).
From here you can choose a streaming video database to browse.
