Videos and CDs that are part of a master's thesis project are usually kept in the Archives. Those materials may not be checked out, but may be viewed by contacting the archivist and setting up an appointment.

We also have access to an ever-growing collection of videos online. Contact Reference (617-824-8674) for assistance.
