Background / Reference

These online encyclopedias will help you locate background information about film directors and their careers, key films, and other information about the movements and time periods they were a part of. Note the dates of each publication (2000, 2007); you will not find more recent material than 2007 here.

Radio-Television-Film Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
