Our large collection of documentary films supports and supplement studies across the College curriculum. We regularly acquire critically-acclaimed and best-selling documentaries. These are shelved according to LC call numbers that correspond to the item's subject.
The Library at Georgetown College provides an environment of information resources with personalized service to engage our community of learners in intellectual, spiritual, and social growth. Georgetown is a residential college that encourages students to build community seven days a week. Providing appropriate materials for leisure and relaxation is one small aspect of the Library’s mission. These are shelved according to their titles, the call number containing the first four letters. Spanish language movies can easily be identified by the flag sticker on their spine including the letters "SPA."
Audiobooks in CD format are purchased regularly, and include popular fiction and non-fiction titles. View titles in the second floor Media Stacks.
The library maintains a classical collection in the second floor media stacks. New acquisitions are located in the New Media Display at the Circulation Desk.
Search the library catalog for more DVD resources.
Since the DVD collection at the Ensor LRC consists of over 3300 both popular and documentary titles, keyword searching is usually the best way to find materials. If you would like to browse the materials, here are a couple of helpful access points.
Reviewing newest acquisitions:
The newest media acquisitions are on the New Media Display across from the Circulation Desk. Older titles usually go to the media stacks on the second floor.
Browsing popular films by language:
Change the advanced search box to "Subject." Type "LRC Foreign Language Films (Language)" in the text box. For example, if you wanted a Spanish language film, type "LRC Foreign Language Films Spanish." If there are too many results (and there likely will be for Spanish) you can narrow down your results using the tools either on the left side or in the top-right drop down box or, you can go back to your advanced search window and enter additional terms.
