Nollywood and Beyond: Books

The global influence of Nigeria's video film industry

Library of Congress Subject Headings

Library of Congress Subject Headings are located in almost every single online catalog record, and are located underneath the title and author. These headings collocate all the books are on a specific subject and are hyperlinked, so clicking on each heading takes you to other books that have the same subject. These work a lot like Facebook tags! When some book is "tagged" with a specific subject, the catalog links all the books with the same subject tag together. For example, in the online record for Viewing African Cinema in the Twenty-First Century, there are five subject headings:

Clicking on the first heading, Video recordings -- Social aspects -- Nigeria gives you every book and article tagged with those three phrases. Video recordings industry -- Nigeria will give you results specific to the business side of Nollywood. NUsearch also works like a search engine. This is a great way to browse library materials if you don't know exactly what you're looking for!
