Thousands of movies, now available for viewing & borrowing, at Douglass Library
If you *really* need a study break, or want to catch up on a few films you missed, the Douglass Library is in your corner.
A new initiative of the library offers undergraduates the option to view current and classic movies in the library or to borrow movie DVDs from thousands of titles and take them home. A display shelf in the rotunda of the library offers a sampling of movies available for viewing or borrowing and there are many additional DVDs in the library's collections.
DVDs in the library's collections include The Butler (2014), Lincoln (2013), Midnight in Paris (2011), Psycho (1960), The Lion King (1994), Blue Valentine (2010), X-Men First Class (2011), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Twelve Angry Men (1957), Precious (2009), and thousands more.
Students can watch a film in one of the six private viewing rooms in the Media Center, on the lower level of the library, or may check out DVDs for up to seven days. They will be asked to present a Rutgers Student ID to check out a DVD.
Students can search the Library's catalog, to look for a particular title of interest, or check in these two libguides:
They can also browse the display shelf for ideas.
Students should consult with staff at the circulation desk, adjacent to the rotunda, for assistance and to pick up the DVDs.
