Mid-Year Fiction and Film Fun!

What do you like to do when there are no exams to study for, no assignments to finish at the last minute (check out Assignment Calculator to help plan your study), or lectures to take notes through?

Some people like to take a holiday, others like to spend time with their friends and family, others like to binge on television shows, and others like to read. Guess what? The library can definitely help you with the last two!

Check out a list of some of our film and TV databases. I recommend Kanopy for streaming access to a great bunch of movies and documentaries like Pride and Prejudice or Gayby Baby.

If you’re more of an “old-school” DVD kind of person you can borrow from the extensive film and TV collection at Kelvin Grove Library – just look for the call-number range: 791.43 on level 4 – R Block.

Maybe reading is more your thing? If so, you should take advantage of our online subscription to Overdrive which is a collection of fiction and non-fiction audio-books and ebooks.

Whatever you decide to choose over mid-year break make sure to stay safe and relax!

De-stress after Week 2 with a good movie

Every year around Oscars time I check my to-watch list and realise there are so many more amazing films I need to see! If you also get inspired to bulk up your film knowledge or you just enjoy a good flick there are plenty of ways to satisfy your movie itch via the Library.

This year’s winners will soon be available for loan but in the meantime you can easily search for “Academy Awards” to find books, DVDs and streaming video of past winners and nominees. Kanopy logo

An even more convenient option is to go straight to one of our excellent online video databases. For narrative films and award-winning documentaries Kanopy Streaming is the place to start. On Kanopy you can work your way from the earliest days of film with silent classics like Broken Blossoms up to recent popular Aussie films like Chopper and Kenny and international classics like All About My Mother, La Dolce Vita and heaps more. For documentary fans there is an extensive collection ranging from classics such as Nanook of the North to modern crowd-pleasers like Man On Wire.

Watch anytime, anywhere and rack up your film snob points.
