How do I search for & borrow movies, films, videos, dvds or other Audio-Visual material?
If you are searching for a specific movie title, you can use FindMore@NUSL or LINC.
In FindMore, you can do a search and then restrict the search to Content Type, Video Recording (Click on More... if necessary). . Note that this will give you physical copies such as DVDs as well as online streaming videos from online video libraries.
You will usually need to know the stack number of the item, so click in through the title to take note of the stack number.
You can also use LINC.
1. Click on LINC
2. Type in title of movie e.g Matrix
3. Select in "Videos/Films Collection"and search
Do note that
a) Audiovisual items are for viewing in library premises only. Lecturers who need to borrow this out of library can use the Advance Booking Form for Media Materials online form (under heading Services for Teaching) from the services list.
b) Certain Digital/AV materials are restricted to staff/students taking a course of study
c) Persons who are not staff/students of NUS, and certain casual/part-time NUS personnel do not have access to Digital/AV resources due to license restrictions
