Extensive American Sign Language video collection
now at Sacramento State

Sacramento State's Library will unveil its new collection of American Sign Language (ASL) videos as part of World Language Day on Saturday, April 30 at the University campus. There will be an information booth and video monitor display inside the library entrance from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a showing of videos and corresponding books from the collection.

There are a total of 315 videos in the collection, 200 of which are children's literature videos, featuring stories such as The Three Little Pigs and Home for a Bunny. The children's literature videos were obtained through the State Department of Education, and the non-profit ASL Access Video provided the rest of the collection.

Other videos cover various topics pertinent to the deaf culture, such as Sign with Your Baby, Meeting with a Real Estate Agent and On the Edge of Deaf Culture: Hearing Children, Deaf Parents. There is a complete list of the videos in the collection available on the Library homepage under "News and Announcements" at

Members of the community can view the videos during library hours at the Library's media center on the main floor of the library. There are individual booths, group viewing rooms, and video conference rooms that are available for watching the videos. The individual booths and group viewing rooms are open on a first come, first serve basis and reservations are required for the video conference rooms. Members of the public must bring a driver's license or picture ID in order to use media center materials.
