Libraries use official terminology (subject headings) created by the Library of Congress (LC) to categorize books by subject. You may want to use subject headings when ordinary keyword searching finds too many irrelevant results. Here are some examples that may be useful when searching for books related to cinema studies. You can also search for the film names or personal names (of directors, actors, etc.) to find books on specific films or people.
If you can't find the books you need at the UW or through our Summit partner libraries (Summit material can be found in UW Libraries Search), use the following catalogs. Books not available at the UW can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
Use "Resource Type" option in UW Libraries Search to limit your search results to eBooks. Additional collections of eBooks can be found on eBook Collections guide.
