Looking for something to watch this weekend? The library has more than 3,500 DVDs to choose from, including Academy Award winners, new releases, cult classics, foreign films, as well as many other categories. If you have suggestions for DVDs we should purchase, please let us know! And if you’re a fan of grainy VHS tapes, we still have over 2,000 of those. During the summer we divided the two collections so that DVDs and VHS tapes are no longer intermingled. Both collections are next to each other on the 2nd floor of the library, close to the top of the stairs. Searching HopeCat is the best way to find out if we own any particular title. You can even do searches such as “show me a list of all the Japanese language films in the library.” Stop by the Research Help Desk and we’ll show you how.
Over the past few years we have been replacing VHS tapes that were still being used with their DVD version, if available. Many older tapes have not been released on DVD so we cannot replace everything. If there is a VHS tape you are interested in having available on DVD, please contact Dave O’Brien (firstname.lastname@example.org).
