Theatre Research Resources: Home

Welcome to the Theatre Research Resources Guide

As you are working on research for your Theatre courses, please let me know if I can help in any way!  Please feel free to email me and we can discuss your questions over email, or we can set up a virtual or in-person research session over Zoom.  View my calendar to set up a time that works for you.

Using the tabs above, you will find links and research tips for using ZSR's resources.  ZSR has access to thousands of books and ebooks, and millions of online articles through our resources in the library catalog and databases, such as Performing Arts Periodicals Database and JSTOR.  Additionally, we have access to full-text playscripts, and thousands of streaming films and online images if you need multimedia resources.

Depending on your topic, you may find additional useful resources on the Costume History Research Resources guide.

And last, but not least, remember to cite your sources!  The Chicago Manual of Style (use VPN) can help you with formatting citations for the sources you find.


Stay healthy and well!

Two Tech Tips:

  1. Download and use VPN: If you keep VPN running in the background while you access campus resources (ebooks, databases, etc...) it makes it look like you are on campus, so many of the authentication issues you might otherwise have will go away.
  2. ProQuest Ebook Central: If you get this error message, don't fear!  Just do as it says and reload the page and it will take you to your book:
