Enter and run a title or keyword search in the basic search box or click on the link to the Advanced Search.

The National Theatre Collection basic search box with the link to the advanced search on the right.

The Advanced Search has a multitude of limits or filters, and is too big for a screenshot to put into this guide.  You will have to go take a look for yourself!

You also can browse by: Titles, Plays, Archival Collections, People, and Content Types by clicking the appropriate large buttons found in a row underneath the basic search box.


Instead of searching each streaming video database separately, you can search all of them at once if you use OneSearch.

STEP 1: Enter a title or title keyword and choose the Books and Media (CSUSB) search option as shown below.

Sample search: 2001 a space odyssey books and media (CSUSB).

STEP 2: To the left of your search results, under Refine my results - Resource Type, click the boxes for Available Online and Video.  This step eliminates everything except streaming videos.

STEP 3: Click the title of a video, and on the next screen the link to the database (name will vary).
