DVD, VHS, and Streaming Videos from Sinclair Library
All of these videos are available at Sinclair Library or the Department of Linguistics. Plan ahead: there may be high demand just before LBC due dates and so your selection may become limited. If you have trouble getting access to videos, please let your instructor know.
Please be sure to CHECK CALL NUMBERS CAREFULLY.
There are some videos with similar names that have NOT been approved for the Linguistics Beyond the Classroom program.
You can look up videos by title, call number, etc. in the Voyager catalog. Note that the call number for these videos includes the word “videotape” or “DVD”.
