  • For in-depth help, request a 1-on-1 Research Consultation to speak with a librarian on a preferred day and time (generally in the same Mon-Fri 9am-5pm range, though exceptions might be possible). We have a variety of tools (including Zoom and Google Hangouts) for "face to face" video conferencing.

Selected books & e-books from the UAH library's collection

Below are just a few of the books and e-books available in the library's collection that may be helpful in your research.  You may want to try the search tool if you are looking at one of our e-books or consult the index for the print titles.  However, just because your particular film is not mentioned, that does not mean it will not be a good resource!  Many of these books mention cultural themes from that country's cinema history that may be present in the film you are researching.

For a more exhaustive search, please go to our library catalog and try search terms like:

"Motion pictures France" (or Germany, Russia, Spain, Israel, etc.)
