DVD collections at Dundee

There are many DVDs available for loan in the library. These are located within the multimedia collection on the top floor of the Main Library, and DJCAD Library. It is possible to request them to any library site. Use Library Search to find the title of the film you would like to watch. You can use the advanced search option to limit the language for your results. If you do not have access to a DVD player please speak to the library staff at the InfoZone in the Main Library. Do make sure you have unlocked the DVD case before you leave the library if you want to borrow a DVD. It is possible to unlock the DVD's at the exit to the library (after the security gates) at Main Library and DJCAD.
