Working in the Film Archives.
Aig, Dennis
In order to locate and study the primary sources needed in film research, a combination of bibliographies, advice from experienced research workers, and scripts, pressbook files, and film-print collections must be used. This discussion provides suggestions for locating and using archival film materials and examines some of the standard references available: bibliographies, catalogs, and directories. The use of less-standard resources, such as trade magazines, and specific sourcebooks is also examined. In addition, guidelines are presented for writing letters of inquiry, for using private collections and community and university libraries, and for contacting and interviewing filmmakers and other researchers.
