This guide serves as a starting point for research.
Scores, sound recordings and librettos are located in the Music Listening Room at call numbers:
The Music Listening Room is located on the Library's first floor in Room 121.
Playscripts are located in Room 200 in the Library.
As you enter the front of the Library, Room 200 is through the double-glass doors to the right. Once inside Room 200, the playscripts are shelved along the wall to the right.
Playscripts are acquired from various publishers, but the majority of the collection is purchased from Samuel French, Inc. and Dramatists Play Service. Play lists, sorted by authors and titles, are located near the playscripts as well as publisher's catalogs, which contain descriptions of many of the plays the Library owns.
Students may use the playscripts in the Library or they may check them out. Playscripts check out for three days and are due back by 4 P.M. on the third day.
