Human Rights Film Directory Mission Statement
The mission of the University of Washington Libraries Human Rights Film Directory is to facilitate the use of human rights documentaries and feature films in the curricula and in academic research. The field of human rights covers all aspects of human dignity and the suffering that follows from its violation.
This directory identifies and brings together into a discrete database all the videos and DVDs held in the UW Libraries collections on the Seattle, Bothell and Tacoma campuses. The Directory also features a specially developed thesaurus of search terms which describe the many complex subjects and issues often unique to the discipline of human rights.
