Butler Media announces circulating DVD collection

The Butler Media Center has announced that ca. 2,000 film titles on DVD are now available and can be checked out by enrolled students, faculty, and staff. This addition to its already impressive research collection. Full details are available on the Libraries Spotlight blog and on the Media Center home page. Note that you can use the “Post Limit” feature in CLIO to select library location “Butler Media (Circulating)” from the list of libraries, if you want to see just the circulating DVDs in your results.

Also, a reminder that the Music & Arts Library also offers over 1,000 circulating DVD titles on diverse musical subjects, including musical works and performances, dance, jazz, popular music, and more.

Music & Arts Library DVDs, which are identified by the “MUSDVD” call number prefix, can be checked out by full-time students, faculty, and staff for 2 weeks. They can be browsed in CLIO by choosing search type “Call Number Exact” and typing in “MUSDVD”. Or, use a keyword search, with quick limits set to “Video Recordings” to find specific artists, titles, countries, and (up to a point) musical styles. Note that the “MUSDVD” call number is for Music & Arts Library DVDs, while plain “DVD” call numbers are generally at Butler Media.
