Are you a film aficionado or aspiring to be one? If so, check out Bloomsbury Screen Studies. This database contains a generous arsenal of film-related materials, including screenplays, scholarly film criticism, reference works, eBooks, and so much more.
With Bloomsbury Screen Studies, users can search by “People,” “Themes,” “Genre, Movements and Styles,” as well as “Films” to examine key elements in the study of film. There is also an interactive timeline which allows you to explore the extensive history of film from the 19th century to the current day. You could literally spend hours looking at old screenplays, reading actor bios, or reviewing scholarly criticism from different film genres and eras.
You can access Bloomsbury Screen Studies by visiting Falvey’s Temporarily Available Online Resources (Spring 2020) webpage. It is listed under “Multiformat Collections,” along with some other great new temporary offerings.
This database will be of particular interest faculty and students who are involved in Media Studies in Villanova’s Department of Communication. However, anyone who has interest in the study of film would undoubtedly find this to be an invaluable resource.
Bloomsbury Screen Studies is presented by Bloomsbury, Faber & Faber, and the British Film Institute. It is a newly acquired resource that is available for temporary use by Villanova faculty, staff, and students until May 31, 2020. Falvey Library gained temporary access to this database due to the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to meet the growing needs of faculty and students who are now working remotely. It is just one of the thousands of new resources that Falvey has recently added.
If you need help using this or any of the library’s databases, please be sure to connect with one of the Library’s amazing subject librarian experts via our Live Chat. You can also email a librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
