The following guide was developed by Juno Dong, the Library's Research Support Services Fellow to accompany a book display on the 1st Floor of Regenstein Library for Asian American Pacific Islander month. Juno is a MAPH student in Linguistics, and has been working at the Regenstein Library's reference desk learning about Library research services.
The CEAS Film Library is one of the largest East Asian DVD collections in the United States, comprising over 5,000 titles from China, Japan, and Korea. It includes historical films, documentaries, television series and contemporary cinema. Many of the films are imported from overseas and are difficult to find in the U.S. Films are available for check-out free of charge to any current University of Chicago student, staff or faculty member. CEAS Associate Members may also borrow films.
Borrow and return in Room 310, 1155 E. 60th Street (Monday-Friday 11:30 AM-4:30 PM)
To search the online film catalog, use the "Advanced Search" function to narrow film entries by language, director, subtitles, etc. Write down the CEAS catalog number so you can find it on the shelf when you arrive. If a film is currently checked out, the catalog listing will read "Not Available."
