Welcome to the first post in our Summer Series highlighting the fun and frivolous offerings of the QUT Library for you to utilise this summer!

Summer and catching up on movies you’ve missed throughout the year or finally getting around to seeing some classics from your ‘one day’ list go hand-in-hand. So come on in (in person or online) and check out the QUT Library’s extensive movie collection.

Browse the movie collection in person at Kelvin Grove Level  4 at call number range 791.43 or search for a particular film you’re after in the Catalogue or in Quickfind.

New titles of 2014 releases include The secret life of Walter Mitty; The Railway man; and Kill your darlings. As well as the DVDs, many titles are streamed online  so you don’t even have to leave home! These streaming films are available to all staff and students.

If you’re not sure where to start or what to watch – how about a summer themed classic such as GreaseJaws; Endless Summer; or Dirty Dancing?

In addition to feature films, the QUT Library also has TV series for loan. TV Marathon here you come! Recent award winning series such as Game of Thrones; True Detective and House of Cards can be found alongside classics such as the The Sopranos and Buffy on the shelves of Level 4, Kelvin Grove Library.  As well as shows for the grown-ups, the Library also has Children’s Television Programs for loan as well.

And remember, if you can’t get to Kelvin Grove campus where most of these are located, you can place a Hold and get items sent to your home campus at Caboolture or Gardens Point to pick up there!

Let us know your favourite Summer-themed movie in the comments below!
