The library’s media collection supports the research and teaching needs at UCSB.  The collection contains feature films, documentaries, and other genres from around the world, in both VHS and DVD formats.  While most of the videos are in the NTSC standard (used in the USA, Canada, and Japan), there are videos in the PAL standard (Europe, Asia, and Australia) and the SECAM standard (France, Russia, Africa).

Materials with the locations "Media Collection" or "Juvenile Media" are located on the 2nd floor, Ocean Side of the UCSB Library. Items from these collections may be checked out or viewed on the library’s media equipment.
