Finding Media in the Library
Media are located on the library's second floor in the Digital Media Studio. Ask for assistance at the help desk in front of the elevators. The loan period for media varies by patron category from 3 days to two weeks.
Search the library catalog for the videos, DVDs, audiocassettes, and CDs that the library owns. If you have a particular title, do a Browse search. If you're not sure of the title or you just want to see what media we have related to keywords that would relate to the content, use the Basic or Advanced search boxes and limit your search by format to Video/Audio/DVD. I have compiled lists of videos dealing with gender and women-related topics on my personal web pages.
The library provides access to a number of digital image collections. The one of most interest to Women's Studies may be the Schlesinger History of Women in America Collection, which is part of the ARTstor database. You will also find images of many artworks created by women in ARTstor.
