Videomatica documentaries now available from SFU Library

January 28, 2014

You can now check out documentaries from the Videomatica collection in the SFU Library's Media Resource Centre. (There's also a preview room in the Media Resource Centre that holds 16–20 people.)

Thanks to a donation/purchase agreement brokered by Yosef Wosk, a former SFU Continuing Studies director and philanthropist, the rental portion of an iconic Vancouver video treasure house is being reincarnated. Wosk’s gift is enabling SFU’s and UBC’s libraries to make available to their immediate campus communities, as well as the public, thousands of prized international films that used to be rentable through Videomatica video store.

There are over 2000 videos currently in the collection and more are still being acquired.
