This paper aims to look at the user‐friendliness of search interfaces of different databases.Design/methodology/approach – Looks at the capabilities of different search engines and the flexibility they allow within databases.Findings – Libraries are increasingly offering multiple means of accessing the data contained in their products, and the era of a single search platform for all library resources is not that far off, and in some cases is already here (with varying degrees of success). Thus the burden on vendors to create ever better search experiences for their users has become all the greater, and the competition both for superior content and superior search interface designing has become a little more intense.Originality/value – This paper shows search capabilities that are available now, and what may be available in the near future.

-- The purpose of this paper is to provide a selected list of free and subscription web resources for film and television (screen) studies.
-- Reference sources on film and other media studies were located, evaluated, and selected. The list is divided into four broad research categories; research databases and film catalogs (subscription products); film and television catalogs/databases (gratis); historical film streaming sites; and film studies portal sites.
-- There are a wide variety of resources available online that users can freely access as well as robust subscription products currently available to libraries to support research in film and television studies. Students and scholars can use both free and fee-based sites for film catalogs, film studies journal indexes, streaming video content, and other information and analysis on visual media.
-- There has not been a bibliographic list of online film studies resources undertaken since 2005, and many new web resources as well as databases have emerged in the field. The annotated list of resources in this study seeks to supplement and update what has been previously discussed in the LIS literature on web-based reference sources available for libraries supporting film and television studies.
