Find Something Specific

If you already know the title of the video you need, finding a copy in the library is usually pretty easy!

  1. Open the library catalog.
  2. Type the video title in the search box.
  3. Limit the format to Videos.
  4. Use the call number to find it on the shelf.

What if we don't have a copy in the Harrison Libaries?

You're not out of luck! We may be able to request a copy through Interlibrary Loan.

  1. Open WorldCat (a catalog of materials from libraries around the world).
  2. Type the video title in the search box.
  3. Limit the format to Visual Materials.
  4. Click the video you need.
  5. Click the link that says "ILL this with ILLiad@H"
  6. Log into ILLiad and submit your request.

Want to learn more about Interlibrary Loan or set up your ILLiad account? See our Interlibrary Loan page.
