Your guide to film and television research at UCLA: Find articles, books, and more.

Quick Links

Research Tip

In general, there is less published scholarly academic criticism available about individual documentaries compared to scripted Hollywood features. For some films, researchers may need to find more general topical writing on documentary technique and/or a subject, and pair it with popular press reviews and articles that help support your thesis.

COVID-19: Library Information, Resources, & Print Access

Find Basic Info and Bibliographies

Get Started with Articles: Major Databases

These online databases are good places to start searching for articles on film studies. For quick reference, hold your mouse over a link for a brief description of the resource. All of these are subscription resources from the Library, so you will need to make sure your computer is configured for off-campus access if you are researching from home.

Connecting from Off-Campus: VPN & Proxy Tutorials

The Library's online subscription resources can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the methods below. Click on the other tabs to see how four Bruins got their computers set up and ready to go for remote access!

If you still need help, you can contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or help@it.ucla.edu. They provide 24/7 phone support.
