Guides to Citation Styles


There are a number of library catalogs available to UCLA researchers. They primarily do not search for articles, but are a good place to search for books and media titles.

Core Journal and Magazine Article Databases

The article databases below index contemporary articles of criticism and history on film-related topics. If connecting from home, make sure your computer is configured for off-campus access. For articles that aren't full text online in a database, use the orange UC-elinks button to locate local subscriptions.

Digital Collection Portals

These digitization projects are freely available online to researchers. Most contain a mix of content, including books, magazines and newspapers, images, and archival materials.
