Film Studies at the Taylor Institution Library

The Film Studies collections at the Taylor Institution Library focus primarily on the history of European cinema and on theoretical work in film aesthetics. The Film Studies book collection is an integrated collection for both teaching and research, housed in the Teaching Collection part of the library, together with a range of film journals and a growing collection of over 4,350 films. The films are predominantly in DVD format, with a minority of VHS cassettes, and a small number of Blu-ray discs. As well as European cinema, the film collection includes other World cinemas, such as Latin America and Asia.
