Multi-Search: A combined search of GIL and about 90 GALILEO databases including the Film & Television Literature Index, the MLA International Bibliography, and several newspaper and popular magazine databases. This guide includes instructions on setting up personal alerts from Multi-Search for new journal issues, articles on a topic, or articles by an author.
If Multi-Search brings back too many results, try searching these databases separately:
Film & Television Literature Index with Full Text: Major source for reviews and criticism from 1972 to present.
MLA International Bibliography, 1926-present: The major source for locating scholarly articles and book chapters in literature, drama, and film. The MLA DIrectory of Periodicals is also searchable through this database.
Communication & Mass Media Complete: Articles in communication and mass media studies, including film studies.
JSTOR: A collection of full-text scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. By going to the database itself instead of Multi-Search, you can search through the full-text of the article. Coverage begins with the journal's first issue, and JSTOR's "rolling wall" means the past 3-5 years are usually not available.
