Theatre 110: Introduction to Theatre: Finding Books

An online course guide for finding library resources for use with Theatre 110

Use Catalog to Find Books & Videos

Research@UWW contains records of library holdings, such as books, videos, and government documents. It provides the call number and location of each item, which are needed to find these materials in the Library.

The catalog does not contain journal, magazine or newspaper articles; to find these periodical articles, see the Finding Articles section of this guide.

To access the catalog, click on the Catalog link on the left side of the Library's homepage, or use the center search box on the Library's homepage.

Briefly, it is worthwhile to be both comprehensive and detailed when searching. Be thorough by using synonyms and truncation when there are multiple ways to refer to an idea. Be focused by using and to combine different ideas together. Remember to put phrases in quotation marks.

Sample Keyword (use and, or, not) searches:

"set design"

"set design" and theater*

(try both spellings of theater when searching: theater or theatre)
