In addition, the index contains over 2000 subject headings for the indexed articles. The index also has digitized the print version of the Film Literature Index. After adding this periodical to the digital collection, the index now contains “approximately 700,000 citations to articles, film reviews and book reviews published between 1976 and 2001.” While this index does not actually contain articles written between 1900 and 1925, it does contain articles that discuss that particular time period.

The Kinsey Institute Film Archive

“The Kinsey Institute Film Archive” is located within the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University. The archive contains a historical stag collection of 1,697 items that encompasses the years 1913-1960s. According to the website these 8mm and 16mm black and white stag films include rare early examples of typical stag film. As these films fall within our current research timeframe, they might be useful to our research.
