Film Studies

A guide to library resources for Film Studies at the University of Essex

Books and Films: Introduction

To find books (including e-books), screenplays and films on DVD/Blu-Ray in the library, you'll need to use Library Search. Library Search enables you to search the library catalogue and also other resources - you can search by keyword (topic), author or title.

Our DVDs and Blu-Rays are kept on floor 5, and you can borrow them for 7 days. You may renew them for a further period as long as they are not required by another library user.

Many films are also available to watch via Box of Broadcasts.
