We are starting to collect information on any archives or other resources, worldwide, who hold screenplays and any other screenwriting material.
We're doing this as simply and easily as possible. If you would like to volunteer to provide information on any resource you know of, please complete as much as you can about this archive/resource, using the questionnaire shown below. It should not take very long at all!
To avoid repetition and overlaps, please let me know what archive/resource you intend to provide information on, BEFORE you complete the questionnaire. I'll let you know if someone else has already done it.
Please help if you can. Hopefully this way we'll have a worldwide, basic database about screenwriting holdings, which we can make available on our website.
Thanks for your help!
