Dear videolibbers,

since Friday last week the new internet portal for German film is
online. More info on this website http://www.filmportal.de/ (for
information please try "english version"). The search function for the
database is to be found only on the German version (please see the link

Interesting perhaps for media librarians: each entry (film title or
person) is directly connected to a meta search engine that searches
through the web catalogues of 13 German film libraries and media centers
(please try the link "Literatur" on the bar above each entry and then
use the box at the right hand side on the following page). The resulting
page offers the hits of books and videos for the title or person
searched. The lower part of that page lists the videos available from or
in the respective institutions (sign is "V"). So the database offers a
dynamic list of references which grows with the holdings of the
institutions connected to the meta search engine

With kind regards
