Under location, you can now select CU: Nursing Audiovisual or CU: Central Reserve Audiovisual to limit your search.

Next, click on Set Limits in the upper left corner of the screen. You will then return to the previous search page.

On the main search page, type "videorecording" in the search box, select Keyword under "Search By," and click on Search. Your results list should include most of the videorecordings in Nursing/Biology Library (if you set the CU: Nursing Audiovisual limit) or in Mullen Library (if you set the CU: Central Reserve Audiovisual limit).

You may also search for sound and visual recordings by title, author (performer, director, or composer), subject heading, or keyword. Setting the limit as above may make these other searches more precise and will eliminate books and other non-audiovisual materials from appearing on your results list.
