Have you ever watched a movie or finished a television series and wished there was a sequel or another similar film or series to what you just watched? The Library has offered read-alike lists for books before but now Oxford County Library has watch-alike lists for DVDs. If the DVD is in the online catalogue, there's a chance it may make its way onto one of these lists.
