An excellent resource for finding movies held by the ASU Library in languages other than English is the Films help page. This site allows the patron to search for movies (DVD or VHS) and streaming videos by title, author/creator, or keyword, as well as supplies lists of all films in specific languages (original version and dubbed).
All DVDs are available for browsing in open shelving on the Lower Level. Popular films are arranged by language under the call number PN1997.

Below are streaming audio resources added by the library.
