Film and Television 106B: European Film History

Using Reference Sources

Reference books are intended to give researchers a starting place on a topic, and are typically in the form of encyclopedias, dictionaries, companions, and biographical resources. If you are unsure of where to start or want to learn more about a specific topic or director, reference materials can be very helpful. Materials housed in Library reference collections must be used in the building and cannot be checked out.
