The media collection includes thousands of feature films, educational films, theatrical performances, documentaries, newsreels, television programs, audiobooks, soundtracks, and other audio visual materials to supplement your educational experience. With hundreds of titles available on Blu-ray, DVD, VHS, and CD in the library and thousands more in streaming format online, there is no end to what you can explore. Many available titles may be found through the Search@UW library catalog, while others may only be found by searching specific Audio & Video Databases.

Physical video titles are located in the DVDs and Videos section on the second floor, past the John and Janet Instructional Lab and the restrooms, and have been shelved by call number. Most are in DVD format. A few may be in VHS or Blu-ray format. You are welcome to use a media player in any of our Study Rooms or checkout a video to enjoy at home in your own time.

Physical audio titles are located in the Listening Collection on the first floor, near the Computer Commons. Music CDs and audiobooks have been shelved separately by call number.

Streaming videos and streaming audio tracks may be accessed from any device with a solid connection to the internet and a valid UW-Superior campus login. If you encounter access issues, please check that you are not being blocked by a firewall—a common problem if you are using a public or workplace internet connection.

Additional video titles may also be requested from other UW libraries via Resource Sharing and occasionally from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan.
