What’s New with the ZSR Film Collection

This handout was created by Craig to promote the DVD Collection. If you would like copies, contact Mary Reeves. The historic image is from the early film, A Trip to the Moon, by George Melies.

Also, at the end of each semester I remove books and films from the Course Reserves shelves and return them to the main collections. This spring I decided to see how many films were on Course Reserves. Out of a total of 250 films, 88 were Feature Films, and 162 were from other genres. I was really surprised by the number of Foreign Films on Course Reserves. I also noticed that faculty from all disciplines placed Foreign Films on Course Reserves for their classes. All in all, there was a total of 27 academic disciplines using films for the spring semester from Course Reserves. This totaled 48 classes and 37 individual faculty members.
