Please email me if you are interested in a database that we don't currently have.
Most publishers offer a free trial for a limited period, usually 2-3 months. During the trial, we ask that you, other faculty, and students provide feedback. This is then shared with the Collections Committee and helps inform their decision-making on whether to purchase or subscribe to the database.
Current database trial: Hollywood, Moral Censorship, and the Motion Picture Production Code, 1927-1968
Trial runs July 21, 2022- October 20, 2022.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) Production Code Administration Files collection documents forty years of self-regulation and censorship in the motion picture industry.
Please provide Feedback and encourage your students to do so!
Instruction - I am available for class visits - in person or online - to talk with students about library resources for cinema studies, and to give guidance on search strategies and other information needs. I love meeting with students in the classroom as it makes it easier for them to contact me for individual research help if they need it later.
Consultation - I am happy to meet with you one-on-one to help support your research needs, or to discuss new materials for our collection.
Guest lectures - My areas of expertise are amateur and non-theatrical film, film archives and preservation, early color processes, and film-related technology. I always bring lots of artifacts to make for an engaging hands-on experience!
Film projection - I am an experienced film archivist and small gauge film projectionist. I especially enjoy projecting film for students who have rarely or never experienced it.
