Dig Deep: Libraries, Archives and Filmmaking
    There is a lot of information out on the open web, but it can be difficult to sort through, and you don't always know how reliable it is. In this session, a variety of electronic database retrieval experts will guide you through the ins and outs of navigating the hundreds of reputable sources available in your local public and/or university library as well as the information in local and national archives. Librarians and archivists can help you find historical data when preparing the first draft of a screenplay; track down drawings and photographs to make sure your costumes are accurate; tap into new funding and grant possibilities; and traverse the difficult terrain of public records and documents. Learn new search strategies and tips that can benefit all aspects and stages of filmmaking. From pre- to post-production, librarians and archivists can help make your limited budget work for you rather than against you.
