DVDs for everyone!

For today’s bit of library propaganda I will tell you about the glories of the Film & Audio department’s DVD collection. Since we first started purchasing DVDs in late 1999, we’ve expanded it from a handful of Alfred Hitchcock titles to more than 10,000 different movies, documentaries, and TV shows.

For the past five or six years I’ve been one of the lucky ones who purchases these critters for the Main library, and in that time I’ve developed my own special collection development policy: if it’s weird, we should buy it. Yes, every library should have a collection of popular titles and enduring classics – those are easy to get. But since we’re such a honkin’ big library (with a fairly steady budget, thank goodness) I think that we need to do our part to keep the public supplied with cult classics and strange documentaries.

So yes, we have Oscar winners. But we also carry:

and more!

So stop by and pick up something weird, or request something from our catalog. And if you can think of a title that we’ve missed, be sure to drop us a line. We’ll see if we can hook you up.
