How can I check out videos or games from the Film & Video Collection or watch eVideos licensed by the University of Delaware Library?


You may check out DVD or Blu-ray discs, video games, or legacy formats (such as VHS) in several ways:

  • For next day service, Monday through Friday:  You may submit a request for an item by using the blue 'Sign in' button in the item's DELCAT record.  After logging in with your UD netID and password, look for the white bar under 'LOCATION ITEMS'.  Click on 'Request' in that bar, and select Morris Library as your pickup location.  Then click the 'SEND REQUEST' button.  You will receive an email the following business day letting you know that your items are ready for you to pick up from the Help Desk on the first floor of Morris Library.


  • For same day service:  You may visit the Student Multimedia Design Center service desk on the lower level of Morris Library during the hours the desk is open with your UD OneCard.  The Student Multimedia Design Center also manages individual and group viewing and gaming carrels, which can be used for on-site viewing of physical media, and circulates DVD drives as well.  If you would like to reserve a viewing or gaming carrel up to two weeks in advance, you may call the SMDC service desk during open hours at (302) 831-8832.


Borrowing policies for physical Film & Video Collection items are as follows:

The Film & Video Collection is in a closed-stacks area and not physically browseable, but staff have created guides for you to browse the Collection virtually.

The Library also licenses eVideo content for use by University of Delaware students and faculty. These titles can be accessed via the titles' DELCAT records by clicking the link that appears in the 'View Online' section of the item's record. Library-licensed eVideos can also be browsed via individual databases via the Media Research Guide.
