It is now possible to search the catalog just for plays, or to get a list of just plays. This is because we have done some new magic in the library catalog, thanks to Shixing Wen, our new head of Technical Services in the library.
The page of resources for theatre and dance now has the search interface for searching just for plays right near the top. It also has links to an automatically updated list of all of the plays that we have, in print, on video, or both.
We do have some plays that have yet to show up with this method, and we're working to get them all included. Contact me if you find any plays that don't show up in this search.
You can also search for plays directly in the main library catalog for doing an "all subject" keyword search (lower search box) for the subject keyword "plays." It works if you use it in the Advanced Search, too.
I think this makes our collection of plays, which is spread throughout the Ps on the fourth floor, along with other literature, much more accessible.
