How To Locate Films and Videos in PittCat

From the main library website you can type the title of a film, the subject you're interested in, or the name of a person into PittCat.

You can then narrow your list of results to just include films, videos, and dvds by using the options on the left of the screen. Select More under Resource Type, Show More, and check Videos, then Apply Filters.

You can also run an Advanced Search, limiting to Video/Film in Material Type, and searching by Title field.

Depending on what you're looking for, you may want to limit your results to just include films in a certain language or just films that are available at your campus library.

To request a film from another campus, first click on its title in PittCat, then click through "Get It" button on its item record.
