About Finding Videos & DVDs

All videos and DVDs are cataloged and listed in the Dartmouth College Library Catalog. You can search for them by author, title, subject, or keyword. Please note - setting the collection menu to Videos & DVDs limits your search results to physical items in the Library. It does not include Web sites that feature streaming video. For these formats, use the Web Resources collection limit.
