Film & Media Studies: Trade & Industry Literature

Trade Magazines can be key primary sources for the study of film, television, and media history.

Search for the names of People, Places, and Things.

(Film Titles, Director/Actor/Producer/etc Last Names, TV network call-signs)

Pay attention to the dates of the articles and make sure they fit your time period of study.

USE QUOTATION MARKS IF A SEARCH TERM IS MORE THAN ONE WORD.

Examples:

"Mary Tyler Moore Show"   |   Titanic AND Cameron  |     "The General" AND Keaton    |    "super mario"  AND game  

1880s - 2000

1880s - 1950s-ish (Mostly pre-1924)

1997 - Present

NOTE:

Microfilm is in the process of being reorganized and is not yet in perfect call number order.

Most of the film-related microfilm content will be in the two cabinets with the PRESS BOOKS signs on top.

(More than just press books in those cabinets!)
