Ask an Archivist

Q: Question for the Script Librarian: How many screenplays are in the Academy's collection?

The Academy: Our amazing script librarian informs us that as of today we have 15,419 screenplays in the Core Collection scripts. This does not include the tens of thousands of scripts in Special Collections.
