Finding Books

Start your search in the Infokat Discovery Library Catalog Advanced Search.

Many film resources can be found using the search term - "Motion Pictures," but it is also a good idea to try other synonyms such as "Cinema," "Film," or "Movies."

Combine those terms with ones related to your specific research -- such as places (Africa, East Africa, or Nigeria) or concepts (history, colonialism, comedy).

Try searching also for the names of directors or actors as well as the name of specific films.
