Cinema Resources at UI Libraries

Between Takes LLC Did you know...

  • The library has over 15,000 feature films in its collection, in many different languages. To see a list of recently-received DVDs, click here.

  • The library has over 4,000 documentary films, from every continent on the planet, including Antarctica. To see a list of recently-received DVDs, click here.

  • DVDs can be checked out for one week, and they can be renewed. Undergrads can have up to ten DVDs checked out at a time.

  • DVDs are not kept in a public area, so they can't be browsed. You will need to use Smart Search or InfoHawk to search for them. Once you find something you want, come to the Main Library Service Desk and ask for it, or make a delivery request and you will be notified by e-mail when you can pick it up at the Service Desk.

  • Interested in film criticism? See our Cinema Studies LibGuide.
