Answer

The library catalog and UST Libraries OneSearch (on the library home page) both contain links to all Films on Demand titles.

In the catalog Basic Search, select "Title begins with" from the dropdown menu and search for the film's title. Open the catalog record and click the link provided.

In UST Libraries OneSearch, search for the film's title or other information, then select the "Audio Visual" facet under "Resource Type" on the left side of the results page (you may need to click "Search" twice to get there). Click "View Online," then (if needed), "Open source in a new window."

To search for film titles within Films on Demand:

Watch this video (2:37) for a demonstration.

Basically, Films on Demand searches segments of films by default, not titles of films. To look up a film by title:

1. Go to Films on Demand

2. To the left of the red "Search" button, select the drop-down list (the triangle next to "By Segments")

3. Select "By Titles" from the list

4. Search for the name of your film
