NEW Cinema Studies research guide!

Film studies scholars and students, as well as regular movie fans, can find many useful resources in the new Cinema Studies research guide, now available on the Rutgers University Libraries website.

The Cinema Studies research guide gives links to reliable reference sources, film review websites, and Web pages for film synopses and credits. The research guide also provides a practical guide on how to search for film related resources in IRIS, the Libraries online information system and catalog, by using Library of Congress Subject Headings.

In addition, the research guide offers descriptions of videos in the Rutgers University Libraries collections in the following areas:

  • Advertising
  • African Studies
  • African American History
  • Cities and Towns
  • The Classical Period
  • Communism
  • Criminal Justice
  • Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Medicine and Health
  • The Middle East and Central Asia
  • The Nuclear Age
  • Protest and Resistance
  • Science
  • Spain and Portugal
  • Women

Users will also find links in the research guide to the Media Center, based in Livingston campus' Kilmer Library, where they can view films in the Libraries collections and to the Rutgers Film Co-op.

Credits for developing this guide go to media librarian Jane Sloan, who was assisted by School of Communication, Information, and Library Science (SCILS) graduate student Ian Goulston.

Users may access the Cinema Studies research guide from the front page of the Rutgers University Libraries, by following the path: Subject Research Guides / General / Cinema Studies.
