Start with Library Search, the large search box on the library's homepage, which will retrieve DVDs and streaming videos.

Search for the title of the video.

If a DVD is available at Parkside, it will say so. DVDs are located in the Art in the Library space on L1 and are arranged alphabetically by title.

If a DVD is not at Parkside, but is available at another UW library, you can request it by clicking on the orange "Use Get It to Request" link. You will have to sign in using your Parkside ID and password; then click the UW Request link. DVDs from other campuses usually arrive within 3 business days.

If the video is streaming, click on Online Access to view it.

Finding videos can be complicated. If you haven't found what you're looking for, or if you're off-campus and are having trouble with streaming, contact us for help.
