Film reference titles now added to FIAF Plus

Researchers using FIAF Plus will now benefit from the addition of five key reference works to this much-loved database of film periodicals in full text.

It would have been even better if they were browsable.  However, you can view the table of contents using the links that I have provided below.  To search the contents of these texts, go to the Search Reference Works section of FIAF.

Texts included:

Film Analysis:A Norton Reader (Norton, 2005)

Encyclopedia of Early Cinema (Routledge, 2004)

Routledge Companion to Film History, (Routledge, 2010)

Oxford History of World Cinema (OUP, 1997)

Critical Ideas in Television Studies (OUP, 1999)

FIAF Plus is a collection of leading full-text film journals from around the world (many available from Volume I, Issue I), providing essential complementary full-text support to the article and index records in FIAF International Index to Film Periodicals.

Updated monthly, users benefit from the most current electronic issues of film journals, including:

• American Cinematographer (1972 – Present)
• Cineaste (1971 (Volume I) –Present)
