About this Guide
This website provides a guide to conducting research in Film Studies at Yale University, highlighting key resources and crucial search strategies. There are many special aspects to doing Film Studies research, including:
- important but unintuitive search terms, such as "motion pictures"
- techniques for finding videos, reviews and screenplays
- intersecting topics, such as how a social group is represented on screen (its role in front of the camera) and its position within the film industry (its role behind the camera)
- major topics (such as financial aspects) that are less prominent in other fields within the arts and humanities
- cast and crew information
- and much more
Through this website, I try to give you some ways to crack open Film Studies' numerous subjects. Most of the pages give examples that you can use as a model for your searches, descriptions of the main resources, and tips on how to use certain databases.
It's important to know that even though the guide focuses on strategies for finding books, often the same or similar approaches will work in article databases.
There are also pages for particular classes, and every month I provide a list of books (and sometimes microfilms, databases and other resources) that the Library acquired the month before.
