The SVA library has an ever expanding collection of DVD's and Blu Rays (currently at 10,000+ items).

Of particular note to the humanities is the V-L section which contains literary titles including interviews and biopics, critical explorations and theory, and staged theatrical drama. Feature film adaptations of literary works can be found in great number in the V-F section.  

Below is a small sample from the V-L section. Also note our streaming video database, Kanopy, which has over 26,000 feature films, documentaries, and training films.
