AV Collection

 

This collection comprises about 8,000 items, mostly in DVD format.

THOL has a good collection of films which can now be borrowed for viewing outside the Library. In compliance with the Film Censorship Act 2002, only films with Certificates A and B issued by the Censor Board can be circulated outside the Library. All other films without certificates have been approved by the Censor Board for viewing within the Library only. Films required for courses or deemed too valuable will be restricted for in-house use.
