Finding Audio and Video Materials in Physical Format

Music Media

  • Currently, all physical music media (CD, DVD, LP, VHS, cassette) are not on shelves that can be browsed.
  • Search for music media in our Library Catalogue by entering information about an item you are searching for.
  • Example Search for Physical Music Media
  • Once you have a list of results, click on the record for the item you are interested in, and choose PLACE HOLD. These types of hold requests are usually filled within 24-48 hours.

Other Subject-based Media

  • Non-music media (DVD, VHS) are stored on the regular shelves with books and journals.
  • Search for physical non-music media in our Library Catalogue by entering information about an item you are searching for.
  • Example Search for Physical Non-music Media
  • Or, you can just head up to shelves and browse (you will need to know at least the beginning part of the call number to do so.)
