Video Database - Searching Tips
You can search the Video Library database by title, keyword, year, or call number. Searches can also be limited by video format (i.e. Beta, VHS, DVD)
Words typed in the search box are joined by an "AND" clause so if you type in "criminal defense", the search will retrieve all records with criminal and defense.
Use truncation to improve your searching power. Use an asterisk (*) to find a root word or number plus all the words/numbers made by adding letters or numbers to the end of it. (i.e. search crim* to find variations of crime including criminal, crimes, etc.)
Browse by title or subject alphabetically.
Additional Search Tips:
- Change the format to retrieve "All Formats"
- Try more general keywords
- Try fewer keywords
- Make sure all words are spelled correctly
