The Claire T. Carney Library has an excellent collection of film related books on the 3rd and 5th floors.
You're welcome (and encouraged) to browse books in person, but you also can plan ahead and see what our library and other libraries have from wherever you are (not to mention get access to ebooks). This page will help you with all of these approaches to finding books.
If there's a book you're interested in that we don't have, see the Interlibrary Loan tab for information on how to get it!
Here's a quick guide on how to read call numbers in our library (and most other academic libraries).
The first line is read in alphabetical order.
Read the second line in numerical order.
The third line is tricky. Read the letter in alphabetical order then the number as a decimal.
Sometimes the fourth line will look like this and you read it exactly like the other line.
When you see a line near the bottom that looks like a year, it is a year! This goes in numerical order.
You could think of a call number like a detailed address in reverse: planet, country, state, city, street, street number. Each line helps you narrow down the book's exact location!
