Note: As of 7/1/19 the library moved to the "Curated PDA Model". Essentially we are keeping our top 5 most heavily used collections as PDA ("click and view").  These collections include: Janus Films (The Criterion Collection),, The Great Courses, Kino Lorber, and Media Education Foundation.  All other collections will be mediated.
