Jorge Knows: It's Movie Time!

Jan 14, 2010 by Leigh Mantle

Jorge with Popcorn by Mary Stettner J-Term is a great time to check out the leisure movie collection at LITS!  Jorge* decided to get some popcorn and browse through the shelves next to the MHC Circulation Desk

Jorge also has some tips for finding movies through the library catalog.  Follow these steps to find movies at Mount Holyoke (including new releases!):

1.) Start on the main page of the Five Colleges Libraries Catalog.

2.) Click on "Mount Holyoke" at the top right of the page (in the list of colleges) and "Basic Search of Mt. Holyoke College" will appear in the middle of the page. 

3.) Next, click on the "Advanced" tab.

4.) In the "Limits" box, click on "Format" to view the drop-down menu.  Select "DVDs, Videos, Films & Slides" from the list.

5.) Then you may search by keywords, title or genre for movies.

6.) Jorge recommends "Winged Migration" for some soaring footage or "Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds" but notes that there are no geese in this film.

* Jorge is MHC's Resident Goose and in addition to his
normal activities (i.e. flying, waddling, swimming, eating, and honking
at everyone walking by Upper Lake) he also likes to discuss LITS'
services and resources.
