The library does not currently own a large collection of scripts and screenplays. However, you can search the library collections through the Library Search by typing the name of your script and one of the following key terms:


"motion picture play" (Scripts and screenplays are often cataloged as "motion pictures plays" or "motion picture scripts")
"motion picture script"

E.g.)  "Police Story" AND "motion picture play"
