Class I

Films in which the protagonist or other major characters are librarians, and the librarian’s occupation serves as catalyst or is otherwise integral to the plot.

Class II

Films in which the protagonist or other major characters are librarians, but the librarian’s occupation does not directly affect the plot.

Class III

Films in which the librarian(s) plays a secondary role, ranging from a supporting character to a minor character with perhaps only a few lines in one memorable or significant scene.

Class IV

Films in which the librarian(s) plays a cameo role and is seen only briefly with little or no dialogue.

Class V

Films with no identifiable librarians, although they might mention librarians or have scenes set in libraries. Some of these films have been mistakenly listed on other sites or lists of reel librarians.
