Media Collection: Finding Media

Omni Search

Search Omni to find individual media titles (videos, DVDs, films) owned by the Trent Library. You'll find DVDs in the library, as well as streaming films, audio files and videos available through many of our online resources.

  • To limit your results to media, select the Resource Type filter for "Videos" or "Audio Visual".
  • To limit your results to physical items in the library (DVDs), select the Availability filter for "Available in Library".

Once you've found a title, you can book it for a class viewing. See our Omni help page for Requesting & Booking.


    Some of our online databases/resources also include short videos. Although these should normally be discovered through Omni, you'll find suggestions for databases to search for these in Databases A-Z,  limiting by type to "Media".
