Finding AudioVisual Materials at the UIUC Library

The Main Library Media Collection holds a wide variety of material on DVD, BluRay Disc, and VHS. It is located in the Main Stacks near the entrance. Materials can be checked out at the Main Stacks circulation desk. Many of these materials may be borrowed for up to one week, although some (materials on reserve for specific courses) do not circulate. 

For additional guidance on searching and finding specific film titles in the library collection, please consult this page from the How to Find Media guide.
