With university classrooms and libraries shuttered because of the COVID-19 crisis, scholars are facing disruptions not only in their teaching lives but also in their ability to access research materials. In response, many academic presses have made hundreds of their titles freely accessible online. The Public Books Database aims to catalog such resources in a single location and to highlight titles of particular interest.
To identify books on your topic, search the Library Catalogue using the keyword or word option. The books in the library are located on floors 6 through 10. Reference and Reserve books are located on the 2nd floor. With a few exceptions, books are shelved according to an alphanumeric sequence of call numbers.
Most books related to Film Studies are located in the call number range PN1992 - PN1999 on the 9th floor. If you do not have a specific author or title of a book, and you do not know the Library of Congress Subject Heading, search the Library Catalogue by Keyword or the "any word or words" option.
