Any videos (both DVD and VHS format) that the IUP Libraries own will be listed in the PILOT online catalog. To find PILOT, go to the Library Home Page ( and click on "Online Catalog". This will open the PILOT system. If you are looking for a specific title, just use the default "Title" search, enter the title in the "Search For" box and click the "Search" button. If IUP owns the title, there will be a listing in the catalog that describes the item and gives you the location and call number. Most videos will be at the Media Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library. Just give the call number to the staff at the desk and they will retrieve the material for you. If you don't know a specific title, you can search for videos by keyword. On the main PILOT page, select the "Guided Search" option. On that page, click on "Search Limits". This gives you the ability to set some search criteria that will be applied to all subsequent searches. On the "Search Limits" screen, scroll down in the "Medium" area and select "Videorecording". Then click the "Set Search Limits" button at the top. This will return to you to the main Guided Search screen with a note that "Search Limits Are In Effect". Now, all the searches you do will only result in records for videos.
