Searching for Videos

The UNR Libraries provide access to tens of thousands of videos in streaming or DVD formats. You can search for videos by using OneSearch on the library homepage. Enter the topic or title of the video and search.

  • Narrow your search by choosing a specific Content Type on the left side of the screen. Select Streaming Video and/or Video Recording (for DVDs) under More.
    • There are many different formats listed under Content Type. Select the video formats that you are interested in and click Apply at the top of the list. The search results should now show only the formats you selected.

Locating DVDs


A DVD area is located in the Popular Reading section on the main floor of the Knowledge Center. The bulk of DVDs are located in MARS (Mathewson Automated Retrieval System). Use the same steps when retrieving a DVD from MARS, as you would books. 

Streaming Videos


To access streaming videos, click on the title of the film or the Available Online link in OneSearch. The streaming video will open in your browser.

  • Visit the Streaming Video Guide for more information about specific streaming video databases that are available through the UNR Libraries.
