Videomatica documentaries now available from SFU Library
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.
- If you're a student who would like access to the videos at UBC, there is a free reciprocal borrowing program so that you can get a UBC library card.
- If you don't have an SFU library card, the SFU library does have an external borrowers program.
