Some of the DVDs available in the library are not compatible with DVD players or media player software made for use in United States. For example, DVDs made for the Middle East are in Region 2, and DVDs made for Latin America are Region 4.  

If you would like to watch a DVD that is made for outside Region 1 (US & Canada), you can watch it in the library in the following locations:

  • A/V Carrel 123A or 123B

The A/V Carrels are first-come, first-served.  

The library offers external DVD drives to check out for 7 days, at the 1st floor service desk. These play DVDs from other countries.

For more information about DVD region codes please see the article on Wikipedia: DVD Region Codes
