The Jerwood Library has been fortunate to receive another very generous donation and this time, it’s DVDs from Billy Newman. Firstly, we checked through them all for duplicates, selling the few we found on to staff and students to raise some funds for the library. My colleague Helen then had the huge task of cataloguing all of the them so that when someone searches the catalogue, they’ll find them easily. To search only for DVDs, simply change the ‘type’ to ‘DVD’.
We’ve got a wide variety of genres on DVD; from masterclasses to films and from musicals to yoga. Many of the new DVDs are operas and what is great is that we’ve got maybe 3 or 4 different versions of the same opera. If you can’t find the opera you’re looking for, or you’re away for the summer, why not try using our online resource: Opera in Video?
Current students and staff can borrow up to four DVDs at once for a week at a time. We’re open for most of the summer so why not take advantage and try out some of the great DVDs the library has to offer – you might just be surprised by what you find!
