The Library



Here are some of the documentary DVDs we have in the Library. You can also search for other titles or directors on Discover - select Video on the Format limiter after searching. Many documentaries will be shelved with DVDs on the subject area that the documentary is about rather than in the film section.

Useful class numbers for documentary

A class number (sometimes called a class mark) is a series of numbers and/or letters found on a resource which indicate its subject area and its position on the library shelves. Books about the same subject are assigned the same class number. You'll find the number on the spine of each book. Here is a selection of class numbers for documentaries:

Class Number Subject
070.18 Documentary making
302.23072 Media and communication research
791.43 Documentary film scriptwriting
