library reaches new milestone
The number of films and TV programs in the Gwendolyn
P. Tandy Memorial Film Library reached 10,000 in May,
said Roger Cooper, chairman of the radio-TV-film department.
Cooper said the size of the librarys inventory
makes it one of the largest film libraries in the nation
among universities. The collection includes films, TV
programs, documentaries and instructional materials,
Cooper said the library is very valuable to both the
students and the teaching staff.
Cooper said the library is a great learning tool because
the faculty can access any film or TV program and use
it to teach their students. He also said students can
study film or filmmakers they are passionate about or
that they can just use the library for projects and
He said students could not gain access to the library
last year because it was limited to faculty only.
