Using the Search Everything Box


Beta Search (All the stuff you need in one search!  Finds books, ebooks, scores, CDs, DVDs, and articles)
Try searching the title of the film along with the director.  Boolean ANDs, ORs and NOTs used to broaden or narrow your search must be all caps.
If you don't find anything, try searching by alternate titles (ie. English translations)
Note: A word of caution -- although this is the "Search Everything" box, there are a few databases in our library's holdings which are not covered in their entirety. To discover additional related materials, please try the databases listed in the Finding Scholarly Articles box below.
