A Guide to Videos & Films

Media Booking Service

The Media Booking service provides McMaster faculty and instructors with the ability to book VHS and DVD materials that are held in Mills Memorial Library, and elsewhere in Ontario, for viewing in class. All McMaster videos booked through Media Booking are captioned.

McMaster University is a member of the Interfilm Group, an informal association of 20 Ontario universities with film and video collections. The Media Catalogue (formerly known as WATMEDIA) lists thousands of film and video titles that may be borrowed free of charge. All faculty and instructors are eligible to request media from these collections. Once you have located a film you wish to borrow, submit a request form.

Can't find the film you were looking for? Feel free to recommend the title for purchase.

Want to put a film on reserve so everyone in the class can view it on their own time? Submit a course reserve request form and we will take care of that.

Still have questions? For more information, please contact the Library Services Desk in Mills Library or by phone at (905) 525-9140 x22078 or email
