Finding video

To find video available through UOregon libraries, use library search. If we do not have a video you would like, you can request items through Summit or ILLiad (information found below). 

If you would like to browse online video services provided by the library, here are two recommendations. You can find others on the UO Libraries' Video Collection guide.

Interlibrary Loan: Getting items from non-UO libraries

Interlibrary Loan is a free service for University of Oregon students, faculty, and staff. It allows you to get a book, video, or CD from another library.

If UO doesn't have the item you want, Summit is the fastest way to get it from another library. When you do a LibrarySearch in the catalog and log in, you are given the option to "Place Summit request." If you click on that link all you need to do is pick a delivery location, and then, when the book arrives, you will get an email to pick it up at the library. So easy!

TIP! You have to be logged in to see the "Place Summit request" link.

If a book, video, or cd is not available through Summit or UO, use ILLiad to request it. This is a free service to get items from another library, but it takes longer (2-3 weeks).

Go to ILLiad. Login with your username and UO ID, select the material you want under "Place request for," fill out the form, and submit. When it's ready you will get an email saying your item can be picked up.

TIP! Make sure to start early when you are doing research! It can take up to 3 weeks to get items from other libraries. 

Design Library Video

The Design Library has been purchasing a limited number of art videos. These are available for check out in the Design Library, and are located behind the circulation desk.

Free online video

The Find Videos & Films research guide has a number of free resources to find video.

More video!

Don't forget about the public library! If you can't find what you are looking for at the University Libraries, and can't wait for an item to come from another university, search the collections at your public library. You must have an address in Eugene or Springfield to check out items from those libraries.
