Libraries  offer more than books. Azusa Tanaka, Japanese collection librarian gives us tips on finding Japanese films.

“The best way to search for the Japanese films would be to use Library of Congress subject headings such as ‘Motion pictures — Japan’ or ‘Motion pictures, Japanese’ in your UW Library Catalog Search” instructs Tanaka,  “But, you can also look for other related headings if you are looking for something specific such as ‘Motion pictures–Japan–Pictorial works’.”  Check out the Japan Studies Research Guide Film & Television section for those tips and other useful information regarding searching and researching on films by clicking on the link below. Happy watching!
