BEYOND BOOKS AND JOURNALS:  VIDEO COLLECTIONS


     Books, journals, databases…these categories spring immediately to mind when one thinks about the Libraries' collections.  While these items are certainly in plentiful supply, the Libraries' holdings include information in a variety of formats, including video.  The UF Libraries' catalog lists video holdings at nearly 7,000 titles.   The "advanced" search mode of WebLUIS makes it easy to limit a keyword search to the video format.
     Library West houses the largest video collection, at 2,786 titles.   This collection covers a variety of subjects in the humanities and social sciences, and includes a rich selection of feature films.  Other substantial collections are housed at the Music Library (319 titles including opera performances, music history, ethnomusicology, and performance technique),  and the Architecture and Fine Arts Library (676 titles including art history, studio technique, architectural history and design, urban & regional planning,  construction, and home improvement).   Smaller video collections can be found at locations such as the Marston Science Library, the Education Library, and others. 
      Many of these materials may be checked out for a 24-hour period.  This policy varies by location.  In addition, most campus libraries provide access to equipment for onsite viewing of video materials.
