Videos available from the library

Helmke Video Archives contains videos of the American Democracy Project, Anthropology Luncheon Lectures, Distinguished Lecturer Series, Omnibus Lecture Series, Opus, and We Shall Remain 5-part PBS Series.

You can search the IUCAT catalog to find video titles available from the IPFW Helmke Library, selected other regional campuses in the IU system, and holdings at IU Bloomington in both Wells Library as well as ALF (Auxiliary Library Facility).

To order a video title, please follow this procedure:

  1. Login with your IPFW username and password to IUCAT using the special Fort Wayne access link. Be sure to search ALL libraries (Fort Wayne is set as the default). Conduct a search. You can use the DVD/video search option (on the right of the screen) to search only video holdings.
  2. If the item is held by Helmke Library, select regional campuses, or ALF, you can select "Request Delivery" to the right of your browser window to have the title delivered to your office directly.
  3. If the item is in the IU Wells Collection, open a delivery request in a new window and order the item through this online request. Please note that IPFW Faculty currently must order any IU Wells video outside of IUCAT.

Allow up to a week for delivery of videos. Also, to order videos from IPFW, select other regional campuses, and ALF, please remember that you must be logged in to IUCAT with your IPFW username and password.
