Using Library Resources in D2L

Video resources

Streamed video is available from the DVDs, Videos and Streaming Tab on the library's main page via our Films on Demand database. You can also find physical items from our DVD/VHS collection by searching our catalog.

To ensure you have video on the dates you need it, contact Margaret Yingling at 651.779.3968, and she'll put your request on the video schedule.
