Check out the following videos to learn how to search for books in the library catalog (and place a hold) or use OneSearch to locate books (and articles) available at Fordham University Libraries.
Looking for e-books only? Select the "Online Resources" option under the library dropdown limiter before your press Search in the catalog.
→ Not sure where to start? Use the Communication and Cinema & Media Studies sections of Oxford Bibliographies to learn about books, theories and theorists, and other influential topics. From there, you can search books by name or author in the library catalog.
→ Looking for books about a film or television director, producer, scholar, or theorist? Search for them in by catalog under subject by name (last name, first name i.e. Rhimes, Shonda or McLuhan, Marshall ).
→ Looking for books by a particular person? Search their name under author (last name, first name i.e.Vaidhyanathan, Siva) to see if Fordham owns books by them.
Borrowing books or accessing articles that are not available at any of the Fordham University Libraries requires assistance from Interlibrary Loan.
