Tips on Searching for Films

  • To find all Films do a keyword search for videorecordings and then do a limit on the search by location = Drury University (these will appear in alpha order).
  • If you are looking for a specific actor or director, use an author search.
  • If you are looking for a specific subject, use the complete video list and modify the search by adding a subject field search.
  • You can also do a boolean keyword search:
    example: "videorecording AND spanish". This will bring up any video with the word spanish in it
  • Educational Films - these will NOT appear in alpha order. To find educational Films on a particular subject, select the "Limit this Search" button. On the screen that appears, change the "Words in the TITLE" box to "Words in the SUBJECT," type in a subject term, and click on the "Limit/sort items" button.
