The Purdue Libraries physical media collection is located in the Humanities, Social Science, and Education Library (HSSE) on the first level of the Stacks. It houses over 3,000 DVDs and other items. To see a location map, click the grey HSSE Library Viewing Areas on the left side this page.
The Purdue IT computers on the first floor of the HSSE Library are all capable playing DVDs. If you need headphones, these can be borrowed using your Purdue ID at the iDesk located in the front of the Library.
Other media viewing spaces are currently unavailable due to construction on the second floor of the HSSE Library. This will be updated as that project is finished late Fall 2023.
Purdue Libraries provides digital streaming collections, including Kanopy and Ambrose Digital. Follow the link below for more information and access to searchable catalogs of digital streaming titles.
If you are planning to show a video in the classroom, there are several possible complications that can arise due to the copyright protection software some manufacturers and service providers use. The best way to help avoid possible complications is to test all media in the classroom before using it.
