Film Studies: Disney

This guide is an introduction to the resources for Film Studies at Dartmouth. If you are interested in Television, see the separate research guide for Television.

Searching for film people

This page is a guide on how to search for people in film. I use Walt Disney as my example. You can substitute the name of the person you want to research using similar resources and search strategies.

In the Library's Collection

Items on Walt Disney are split between 3 locations: the Sherman Art Library, Baker Level 4 and the Jones Media Center.

Article Indexes for Disney

Articles about Walt Disney are in many publications. Although we do not have a journal that is dedicated to only Disney, you can use the Summon box below to find articles or search in Film & Television Literature Index or Art Full Text.


Dartmouth Users: Using Summon from off-campus? You'll need VPN for access to full-text.

Keeping up with the journal literature

Want an easy way to keep up with the journal literature for all facets of Film Studies? And you use a mobile device? You can install the BrowZine app and create a custom Bookshelf of your favorite journal titles. Then you will get the Table of Contents (ToCs) of your favorite journals automatically delivered to you when they become available. Once you have the ToC's you can download and read the articles you want.

You can get the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Don't own or use a mobile device? You can still use BrowZine! It's now available in a web version. You can get to it here. The web version works the same way as the app version. Find the journals you like, create a custom Bookshelf, get ToCs and read the articles you want.
