The only complete list of videos is a printed list available at the media desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton. However, all of our videos are included in the PILOT online catalog. If you looking for a specific title, just do a "Title" Search. If IUP owns the item, there will be an entry in the catalog. If you are looking for videos by subject or keyword, there is a technique you can use to search just for videos. On the main screen of PILOT, click on the "Search Limits" button. This will take you to a screen where you can set all kinds of limits on your search. Use the drop-down box for "Medium" and scroll all the way to the bottom to select "Videorecording". Then click the "Set Limits" button. This will return you to the main screen which will now have a note that "Search Limits Are In Effect". Now all the keyword searches you do will only return videos (either VHS or DVD). Since not all of the searches on the main "Author/Title/Subject" screen of PILOT are keyword searches, I recommend that you select the "Guided Search" option. All of those searches are keyword searchs and will work properly for limiting to video. You can approximate a full list of video titles by doing a keyword search for the text "PZI?". The PZI code is an internal computer code that is found on most (but not all) of the records in the database. This search essentially tells the system to 'find everything' and then limit to videos. You can sort the results by title, author, publication date, etc.
