It's not that Team SCREENsite feels that all enjoyment of film and television must be crushed from the study of those media. It's just that SCREENsite hopes to nurture thoughtful, critical approaches to media--rather than noodling on about the fullness of some actor's lips or ruminating about the latest Hollywood gossip (unless, of course, you're planning an oral history of the medium).
As you'll see, SCREENsite is structured much like a conventional book. Consequently, the best place to begin is its Table of Contents, which provides a general outline of SCREENsite.
One can navigate SCREENsite faster than most books, however. Like all Web sites, SCREENsite materials are connected to one another through hypertext links. Hypertext links--such as the words "Table of Contents"--let you zip immediately from one location to another. Indeed, if you choose one of the following, you'll hop over to an index for each specific area within SCREENsite:
In addition, most locations in SCREENsite are "signed" by their authors--including their e-mail address. You can usually get further help by e-mailing the author for more information.

"Webmaster," incidentally, is common jargon for the person in charge of a WWW site--functioning much like the postmaster of a post office. You'll often see references to "webmaster" on SCREENsite. The term also serves as a generic title to refer to the SCREENsite staff. If you have comments, problems or questions about SCREENsite, feel free to send e-mail to SCREENsite Webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org).
That SCREENsite exists at all is because the University of Alabama's Division of Student Affairs granted us the disk space to start it up. Additional resources are provided by UA's Telecommunication and Film Department and College of Communication. We say, "Thanks!" to both these organizations and to our colleagues developing Web sites at the University of Alabama.
