Most library catalogues offer a limit by format option in their advanced
search interface - that should do what you need.
Better (modern) catalogues also facet all search results automatically into
media types amongst other options so you just select the facet that
represents the subgroup of results you want (so clients don't need to know
how to use advanced search).
Hope that helps :-)
