Now Showing: Catch "Big Fish" and More on DVD

Editor's Note: Now Showing features recommendations by library staff members of DVDs from the TWU Libraries' DVD Collection.  This is the first in a continuing series.

This month’s recommendation is by Carole Gruhn, Library Assistant with the Circulation Department of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus. She recommends the Tim Burton film Big Fish (DVD 884).

Carole says:
I love Big Fish because it reminds me of my father and all the exaggerated stories he tells about our family. This movie is funny, dramatic, and has beautiful special effects. It’s a larger-than-life movie that will make you laugh out loud and encourage you to view normal life as an extraordinary adventure.  
Big Fish and many other DVDs are available at the Blagg-Huey Library Circulation Desk (on the first floor, to your left as you enter the building.)  See TWU Libraries' DVD Collection for a complete list of the titles we carry to entertain, educate and inspire you.  Coming soon--an illustrated DVD listing for easier browsing.

DVD DESCRIPTIONS: AS EASY AS 1-2-3

1) Go to the TWU Libraries homepage; 2) Type the DVD title in the TWUniversal box (the grey box at the top center of the page--look for the magnifying glass); and 3) Click on Details.

DVD CHECKOUT POLICIES
All TWU students and faculty and staff members with a valid TWU ID card may check out DVDs.  Simply locate your selection on the attached list and take the call number (DVD 287, for example) to the Blagg-Huey Library Circulation Desk. A library staff member will be happy to assist you.  For more information on TWU media checkout privileges, see the libraries' Borrowing Materials page or contact the Circulation Department at 940-898-3719.  We are, as always, happy to help.

Enjoy.
