Film Resources: Search for Books

Search for Books

Library Catalog

Try the Library Catalog to find information about film and gather ideas for research topics. This includes biographies, specific film genres, film criticism, and the films themselves on DVD.

Tips for locating books:

  • In the main search box, start with a word or phrase to begin a search ("keyword" search); or try an Advanced search to limit a search to only an author, title, or subject.
  • For only print books or DVDs found in the physical libraries, be sure to limit the search to only the CCC Library Catalog or SCCCD Library Catalog.
  • Check what items you have out, save items, order materials from SCCCD libraries, and renew materials directly from the library catalog. All current students and staff have an account; log in with your Canvas/Email login credentials. For more information on accessing your account, contact the library or check out our library account instructions.
