  • Check the box next to your desired media type (in this case, "DVD Videos") in the "Include" column and click "Continue." 


  • Look for the "DVD Video" label (or "Audio CD" if you are looking for a CD).
  • To see more information, click on the "Availability & Request Options" tab. This will include information on whether the item is available for checkout and where it can be found in the library.
