TVDM 22500: Television Production and Direction


The Museum of Broadcast Communication's Encyclopedia is a good place to begin when searching for background on the great producers and directors of television.  It is an online resource.

Researching Past & Present Influencers

The links in the boxes, below, are often searching the influencer as a subject in our Library's catalog (books and videos) and in EBSCO Research Library (articles).  You can broaden the search by taking the person out of the subject field (just searching "Lucille Ball" as a keyword).  You can also search our databases for specific TV shows to broaden the search or use alternate databases.  If you require assistance, either email me or click MEET (under my picture to the right) to schedule an appointment to meet with me in person.
