The simplist way to find films in Tomlinson Library's collection is to do a keyword seach for the title, director, subject or other terms, plus the word videorecording. The results will include DVDs and videos. Examples:
Fellini and videorecording
"The Bicycle Thief" and videorecording
noir and videorecording
Finding books about film
The subject heading for books on Film Studies in the library catalog is MOTION PICTURES. Similarly, the movie business is called the motion picture industry, and screenplays are motion picture plays. Using these subject headings in your search can help find materials more effectively.
Films can be found in three possible locations in the library. The Popular Movies section can be found in the Northwest corner of the first floor. Films with the location CMU Videocassette will also be in the same area. Films with a location of Circ Desk can be found at the Circulation Desk on the first floor.
