Finding DVDs with SearchAll
Step 1 - Enter your search terms.
Begin your search for film at http://www.library.tulane.edu.
Enter your search terms into the search box (it could be a title, director, actor, genre, keyword, etc.) and click the magnifying glass.
Step 2 - Refine to just Video Recordings.
SearchAll retrieves articles, transcripts, books, and anything else with your search term. To quickly retrieve just the DVD, use the REFINEMENTS on the left side of your screen to limit your results to Video Recordings.
Hint - You may have to click "show 1 more" at the bottom of the refinements list to see all your options.
Step 3 - Check availability and location.
The text in bold gives you some information about the location and availability.
- If the text is in green, then it is available at the location and call number provided.
- If it is in red, then the item is checked out from the provided location.
- If it is in black, as in this example, then it is available from multiple locations.
When an item is available at multiple locations, click the Locations tab to get the call number and availability.
By opening the Locations tab we can see that this film is available from three different locations. Amistad and Jones Hall (Hogan Jazz Archives) areboth research collections and you must view items there. All items in the Music & Media Center circulate unless it is on Media Reserves.
Step 4 - Retrieve your film!
Copy down the call number located in the locations tab and give it to a Music & Media Center staff member. We pull the item for you and check it out to you right there!
