Hullo all (and don't we all fall down on our knees and thanks the stars
it's Friday)

Over the last couple of weeks, I've finally gotten off my video librarian's
duff and put together something I should have put together years ago: a
research guide for finding primary source moving image and sound materials.
Since this is largely geared to undergrads, I've made the executive
decision to focus almost exclusively on: a) stuff that's on this campus b)
stuff that's available online.

I would greatly appreciate your taking a collective look and letting me
know if I've left something significant out or if there are serious flaws.


Similarly, since we've recently hired a film historiographer in the Film
Studies Dept. and since interest in early film research has intensified in
the last coupla years, I also put together a guide to doing primary source
research in film:


Let me know what you think.
