Finding video performances of Shakespeare's plays

Video recordings of performances of Shakespeare's plays can be found streaming online and in DVD at the library.



The library catalog can be used to find DVDs of performances and adaptations of Shakespeare's works.

A search that will provide both performances of Shakespeare's plays, as well as adaptations, would be to perform a simple keyword search for Shakespeare, then limit the search to return only video recordings.

A more focused search for just performances of his plays would be to search for Shakespeare as an author, then limit to video recordings.
