Books

Search for books and ebooks on Library Search. It will tell you what we have in stock and where to find it. 

Sometimes there may only be a chapter on a specific topic rather than a whole book. To find those, you will need to use one of our ebook databases which allow you to search through the whole text of a book. We have several ebook collections but a good place to start would be Ebook Central.

Screen Studies includes several books on animation.

Journals and Articles

Journal Finder provides details of our print and e-journals collections. Library Search will find specific articles from journals so is a good place to start, as it searches across thousands of different journals and will uncover articles in places you may not think to look.

You should then move on to more subject-specific databases such as the following:

An alphabetical list of all our databases can be found in the E-Databases A-Z.

For resources on the business and marketing side of animation, see the Business & Management subject guide.
