There are two ways to see if we own a film that is needed for a course.

To search for the film you are seeking, I began on the Library's homepage, locate the blue search box in the top left corner.  Select Catalogs, then STARS. Click Advanced Search, then enter your movie title ("Four Days in September") including the quotation marks. Use the Format limiter and select Video/DVD.  Unfortunately, my search yeilded no results in our catalog. 

One more place you can try in such searches is the Course Reserve section of our site, since some professors put their own copies of items on reserve for their courses and they are not in our online catalog.  Clicke the Course Reserves tab in the upper right corner of the library homepage. Then enter the item that you need.  You can also enter your course number if you would like, but the title would be more effective if you are unsure if it is available.  This title did not come up there either, so it is not on reserve.

If you would like, you can place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL)  request and we can have the film sent in from another library. To place such a request, you must set up a free ILL account which can be found on the ILL page linked below. The department will contact you when the film is received and available for pickup.
