Binghamton University’s cinema collection includes books, magazines and journals, DVDs, and yes, films. The history, theory, criticism, cinematography, and social and artistic impact of popular, documentary, and experimental films are explored in depth in the collection. DVD and VHS titles can be checked out at the Newcomb Reading Room Circulation Desk.
The cinema holdings have been greatly enhanced by several donations of Allan Rogg, a New York based private collector and bibliographer, to the Libraries starting in 2006. His gifts include over 9,000 monographs spanning over one hundred years (1893-2010). Most of the Allan Rogg Collection of Modern Cinema (also view the collection in Find It!) can be found in the Fine Arts Library Stacks. However, several limited editions and unique and fragile items are housed in Special Collections.
