Finding Films at Temple

Temple University faculty and students have access to two large video and DVD collections: 1) the CLA Ed Tech Center collection located in AL-21 Anderson Hall , and 2) the Paley Library collection, presently located at Media Services on the ground floor of Paley Library.

The CLA ED Tech Center collection is a teaching resource for faculty and TAs; faculty and TAs are permitted to checkout video, audio, and slide resources or place them on reserve for classes. Students are not permitted to checkout materials but may view visual materials related to their coursework in selected study spaces at the Center.

Materials from the Paley Library collection should be asked for at the Media Services desk on the ground floor of Paley Library and can be checked out by anyone with a Temple ID for a period of 7 days, if it has not been placed on reserve for classes. All videos and DVDs from both collections are listed in Library Search. Videos or DVDs in either collection can be located by title.

 The folllowing is a sampling of the many documentaries about cities available from the Paley Library collection:
