TODAY'S TIP: Using Advanced Searching to Find a List of All DVDs

Patrons often ask if we have a list of all dvds, or a list of all audiobooks, at the branch. We don’t have print lists, but you can create your own by doing an advanced search. From the SFPL catalog search page, click on Advanced Search.

Put an asterisk (*) in the search box, then limit the material type to DVD/VCD (or whatever material type you want), and limit the “Scope” to Excelsior Branch. Once the search is done, you can click “limit to available” to see only the dvds that are on the shelf right now.
