To limit your Quick Search results to a specific type of non-book material such as CD-ROM, DVD, computer file, etc., do a search then limit the results by location using the facets on the left side of the screen. For example, if you want to look for an educational game or curriculum kit, search for the topic and limit to Available in the Library and then limit to Parks Library--Media. This does not work perfectly, but it is the best available option.
