Film/Video and Formats

The University of Lethbridge Library has many films and videos available in a variety of digital formats such as DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming. The Library also has the equipment you need to make use of these videos for personal study or class instructional purposes. 

While this guide will provide you with a basic orientation to the film and video collection there are many people available to help you should you need.

For help finding a video on a particular subject ask for help at the Information and Research Assistance Desk (IRAD). For help with any of the equipment or other "technical problems" ask a Peer Assisted Technology Support Students (PATSS). If you have questions about borrowing periods or information on what you can sign out of the Library check with the General Services Desk (GSD).
