Dance History Research Resources: Home

Welcome to the History of Dance Resource Guide

As you are working on research for any dance history topics, please let me know if you have questions or need assistance!  Feel free to email me and we can discuss your questions over email, or we can set up an in-person or virtual research session in Zoom.  View my calendar to set up a research appointment time.  

In addition to the many physical books in our collection, ZSR has access to thousands of ebooks and millions of online articles.  They can be accessed through the library catalog and databases such as Performing Arts Periodicals Database and JSTOR, as well as the International Encyclopedia of Dance.  Additionally, we have access to thousands of streaming films and online images if you need multimedia resources.  Get tips on finding and using these resources from the tabs above.  

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:
