Additional documentaries are available as this list does not include all of the films acquired for anthropology, development, film studies, and other departments. Please search DiscoverE and/or contact a librarian for assistance in locating other titles or a specific topic.

Film Rentals

The library prefers to purchase films instead of renting. However, if a film can not be purchased, the Music & Media Library can assist faculty or a department in renting a film. The library will pay upt to $100 and the sponsoring department pays the any additional amount. The rental film order request form is available from the Music & Media Library. Please note the rental film showing policies.

Tips for Faculty & Students

Documentaries & films are located on the 4th floor of the Woodruff Library in the Music & Media Library.


  • Faculty can arrange for a student assistant or staff person to check out films for them. Call the Music & Media Library at 404-727-1777, request to speak with the supervisor on duty, and ask for a proxy form for media items.
  • Faculty can request additional titles to be purchased for the collection. Contact your subject librarian.


  • Student privileges vary; some DVD's can be checked-out for 3-days whereas other films must remain in the library.

Campus Film Festivals
