Milton: Films

Using Our Library's Film Collection

Film can be an excellent resource for your research.  Our library’s film collection covers a wide range of topics.  Borrowing from our film collection is restricted to Huntingdon students, faculty and staff.  When searching for films in Countess, the online catalogue, you can limit your search results to only films by clicking on “Videos” in the “Limit To:” box.
