How to Search for Videos and DVDs

In the box below, add the term “videorecording” to your search terms


Hints for better searching

  • Keep your search terms brief and general: children hospital videorecording instead of treatment of children in hospitals videorecording.
  • Use an asterisk (*) to search for several similar words at once: child* videorecording will return video and DVD results containing child, child's, children, and children’s.
  • For more targeted searches, use quotation marks to search for words together: “child welfare” videorecording will only return results where those words appear as a phrase.
