The UT Libraries have a collection of videos (DVD, VHS, and electronic formats) that support the University's curriculum. There are educational videos on a variety of topics, as well as feature films that primarily support our department of Theatre and Film.
The Libraries subscribe to the following resources of streaming videos from a variety of fields.
Videos are listed in the UT Library Catalog. You can search for them by film title, author (includes director and principal actors), or by subject such as Feature Films. You may also search by Keyword and limit to Material Type: DVD/Videocassette or Digital Video. All UT videos can be checked out for 7 days unless they are on reserve for a course, which may have shorter check out periods. Items can be renewed once, and overdue fines are $0.25 per item per day.
The Circulation Department of Carlson Library maintains a printed list of all of the videos (PDF). For in-library viewing, the department has:
We can provide a group video-viewing room if you have a group of 2 or more that need to view a video together. You can obtain the key from the Circulation Desk.
On the Health Science Campus, the Library maintains most of its multimedia collection on reserve at the Mulford Access Services Desk. It is best to search for this material in the UT Library Catalog and select Health Sci Lib and AUDIOVISUAL" or "DIGITAL VIDEO" or "DVD/VIDEOCASSETTE" from the search drop-down menus.
The public library system in Toledo and Lucas County also has videos, and includes more general entertainment videos than UT. When searching the TLCPL Catalog, limit the Material Type to Video-DVD or Video-VHS. Be sure to note the library or branch where the video is located.
Some OhioLINK libraries will loan their videos, so you may want to search on the OhioLINK Library Catalog. However, many schools do not lend their videos, and those that do will only lend them for 1 week with no renewal.
Videos are also available through the Internet from the Digital Video Collection. You may browse by title or search by keyword. Each video can be viewedon the site or downloaded as a Real Media or Flash Video (caution: very large files).
