The library from home

Here are all the resources which patrons can enjoy without actually having to be at the library. You log in with the bar code on your library card.

Film & Television Literature Index

This database contains journals and books. All the articles and book chapters are indexed and searchable, both through descriptive keywords and in the full text. However, not all indexed articles are available in full text, but as we usually have a printed copy of the journals, you can request the printed journal from closed stacks.

FIAF International Index to Film Periodicals

Full text and references to articles and reviews in over 300 international film- and TV-journals. Most indexed articles not available in full text can be requested as printed journals from closed stacks.

Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive (EIMA)

The database contains scanned journals on film, media, theatre and music (1880-2000). These include Variety, Screen International, Film Weekly, Picture Goer and Boxoffice and many more.

Screen studies

Screenplays, critical, contextual and practical books on films and filmmaking from the late nineteenth century to the present, expert overview articles on key themes, and an interactive timeline of cinema history to enhance contextual understanding.
*Book titles searchable through Primo.

AFI Catalog

The AFI Catalog covers the history of American cinema comprehensively from 1893 to 1975, with full or short records for films from 1976 to present. Every film produced on American soil or by American production companies is indexed from the birth of cinema to the present day. New records are created by the AFI editorial team and added each year.

Film Index International

Film Index International is produced in collaboration with the British Film Institute. Film Index International provides international coverage, indexing films from over 170 countries.

Schirmer encyclopedia of film

This database is actually more of a digital encyclopedia, providing a good introduction to film and film theory-related terminology, as well as recommendations for further reading.
