This Library Research Guide will provide information about and access to some of the most significant research materials available from McFarlin Library related to Film Studies.
If you're just beginning your research or you want to develop a basic understanding of film, cinema and related disciplines, check out the Books/E-Books tab. Books often synthesize the available scholarship on a topic. This makes them an excellent resource when you need a lot of information quickly (including historical information), you want to put a topic in context with other issues, or you need a good summary of research. McFarlin Library provides books in both print and electronic formats.
If you're doing more in-depth research, such as for an upper division or graduate class or a senior project, you'll probably want to track down some journal articles on your topic. Check out what's in the Journal Articles & More tab. You'll learn about the major resources McFarlin has that will help you identify and retrieve professional and scholarly articles on film-related topics.
The Movies on DVD tab will show you where in the building the DVDs and Blu-Rays are kept and how to locate the specific film you may be interested in viewing. TU students may check out movies to view outside the library.
