Finding Screenplays

Dear Colleagues,

Normally I would be embarrassed to ask this question, but I am not  
actually a film studies person by training, but just trolling this  
list to keep current with audio-visual media issues.  I am co- 
teaching a grad bibliography course this fall, and my co-teacher and  
I thought that it would be a good idea to introduce our students to  
ways to find scripts or screenplays, but the thing is we don't really  
know ourselves.  I know that in some cases, screenplays get published  
in book form and that some get published in Kinema Junpo, but are  
there other sources that we should be aware of (something like a  
Japanese equivalent of or something like that)?  When I was  
at UCLA, you could just buy cheaply bound screenplays from vendors on  
the street, but I've never seen such a thing in Shinjuku.
