New! Database Trial of Interest - International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance

Yes, the International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance really might be of interest to you and your students.

I know all of you are incredibly busy right now, but I'd like to alert you to a resource that the library is considering. I hope you have some time during the break to give it a "test drive."

International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance:  the UVM Libraries currently has trial access to this core research resource for theatre, dance, and performing arts. Date coverage extends back to the early 1900s for some publications.  It has
  • More than 60,000 journal articles, books, book articles and dissertation abstracts
  • Full text for more than 500 total titles, including books and journals
Topics relevant to English/FTS folk include: mysteries & miracle plays, African drama, motion picture direction and production, documentary films and filmmakers, amongst others.


How to Access:
from the Library's Database Trials page
On-campus, or from off-campus, through the VPN client

The trial runs through January 2012.
We'd love your feedback. Submit your comments to me or through the online feedback form found on the database trials page.
