Finding Films in Fogler Library

Search URSUS for DVDs and streaming video.

To find DVDs in the University of Maine System (all campuses), go to URSUS, click on Advanced Search, and in the Material Type field select Video Recording. Then enter your search terms in the box at the top of the page. If there are videos with the status "Available" from libraries other than Fogler, you can request them through URSUS.* 

To limit your search to Fogler-only materials, select the University of Maine Catalog from the dropdown menu next to the search bar.

*Not all libraries lend their videos.
