Cal State Fullerton Pollak Library

Options for obtaining videos not owned by the CSUF Library

OPTION #1: BORROWING 

Your local public library often has videos you can borrow, and sometimes documentaries (including popular titles like PBS, A&E, etc.) Below are some public libraries close to CSUF. Connect to their online catalog and do a keyword search: the keyword of your choice plus the word "videorecording." (Note: you must have a library card at a particular library in order to borrow from it).

OPTION #2: RENTING

CHAIN RENTAL STORES
Chains are good because they often have a website you can log onto to see what titles they carry. Then just call the local store, and see if they have it, or can get it. You'll need to establish a membership first, though.
