Movie camera

The Library has added hundreds of films from all over the world on Jewish, Israeli, Muslim, and Arab culture to our collection, and is always happy to purchase student and faculty requests (subject to budgetary limits).

These can be accessed through the catalog by title, director, etc. They can also be retrieved by typing in one of several subject headings:

Feature films--[Country]

Documentary films--[Country]

You can also do an "Advanced" search in our library catalog, use any keyword you like, and set the "Format" box below to "DVD's, Videos, Films & Slides."

For example, you could do a "DVD, etc." search with the keyword "Yiddish" to retrieve our growing library of films in that language.

Note that many of these films are not Region 1, NTSC productions, and may need multiregional DVD players or computers with special software for viewing. This equipment can be found in Reserves, third floor, Du Bois Library.
