Sign Language Poetry: DVDs

This guide points to resources about international sign language poetry and literature.

Finding DVDs

Here are selected DVDs from sign language artists. These DVDs from the 1st floor Deaf Media collection may be borrowed for up to 3 weeks with your ID card. You may view them on the computers or borrow a laptop from the Reserve Desk. Other DVDs are available at the Reserve Desk and must be viewed in the library. Professors can borrow them for class viewings. Use the RIT Library Catalog to find more DVDs on this topic. In the catalog search box below use the keywords sign language poe*, American Sign Language poe*,  and ASL poe*.  Note that an asterisk is used to get variations of the word: poetry, poem(s) or poet(s).  Narrow from the entire catalog to Videos and DVDs.

If you need to find a video offsite, this short video shows you how to request an offsite video (ie, building 99).  It takes a day or two for the DVD to be delivered to the Library Services Desk, where you can pick it up. 

Below is an online video from the American Culture: Deaf Perspective series from San Francisco Library. This video focuses on ASL Poetry and LIterature.
