Internet Movie Database

IMDB is a great source for finding more info about a film -- director, cast, production and box office information. You can then use this info to find movie reviews and scholarly articles about your film.

Don't forget about Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery. Library staff do their best to get the materials that you need from libraries throughout the United States and around the world. If you find a book or journal/magazine article that we don't have in our collection, go ahead and submit a Interlibrary request right away.  Depending on where the staff locate your request, it could take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks or more.

How do I submit a request?  First, you need to create an account.  To do that, go to Interlibrary Requests and click on the "Request a Title" link. Once you create an account, you can simply use your netID and password to submit requests.
