Entertainment Industry News and Trade Publications

Major digitization projects that include historic entertainment magazines previously unavailable online.

Most of these sites have Twitter, Facebook, and/or RSS feeds, allowing you to follow news more easily. They are useful for contemporary news only. For older content, use print editions of publications and databases listed under "Historical Entertainment Industry Magazines Online."

Search Library Catalogs like UC Library Search with subject headings.

Other Los Angeles Libraries

Few libraries have completely comprehensive print runs of historical trade magazines. Other libraries in L.A. with trades that may complement holdings at UCLA include the Herrick Library and USC.

Industry Resources Not Accessible via UCLA

The UCLA Library does not license databases and other online resources that can't be accessed by IP address for the campus community, and that require a unique individual password. Some industry data tools and directories are in this category, including:

  • Nielsen reports
  • Baseline
  • IMDb Pro
  • SNL Kagan
  • Studio System (Gracenote)
