This is a guide to both print and electronic resources, encompassing cinema, television, video and digital media.


"...Give me those slippers." So commands the Wicked Witch of the West to Dorothy in the 1939 classic film, "Wizard of Oz."  Here in the Library, we like to think that those electric, ruby-red shoes represent the power of knowledge. Grappling with the complexities of moving images requires active engagement, including discussion, viewing, creating, researching--and above all all else--reading and writing about what you see and hear. Yet, there is supreme enjoyment in mastering these activities.  By following  this yellow brick road paved with the bricks of research tools, you, too, can  become a Wizard of Motion Picture Arts!.
