Screen Studies collection

Most of the resources pertaining to Screen Studies collection are housed in the J.B. Chifley Building. In addition, there are some film and new media materials in other Library buildings and in the ANU Print Repository. Coverage includes: film history, film theory and film analysis, digital media arts and performance and media research. 

The collections consist of material in print and electronic format. Print resources are distributed across all Library locations on a subject basis. Materials in the electronic collection are available off campus to ANU staff and students through the reverse proxy server. All resources are listed in the online catalogue.

Screen Studies Program at ANU

Film in all genres and formats, from celluloid to the new media worlds of digital FX, continues to be a leading art form and a major means of communication of our time. The Screen Studies Program at the ANU aims to provide students with a solid grounding in all the major aspects of film culture.
