Request Materials

Print or e-books 

Use this form to recommend or request print or e-books. Sign in with your NetID. Select "Theatre" as your department, and the request will come straight to me, your subject librarian. If the item is for a specific course, please include the course name and number on the form.

DVD or Streaming Video 

Use this googleform to request videos on DVD, Blu-Ray, or streaming media. Please include your format preference, and duration of the license if it's streaming video.


Please email me if you are interested in a database that we don't currently have. 

Most publishers offer a free trial for a limited period, usually 2-3 months. During the trial, we ask that you, other faculty, and students provide feedback. This is then shared with the Collections Committee and helps inform their decision-making on whether to purchase or subscribe to the database.

Instruction, consultation, film projection

Instruction - I am available for class visits - in person or online - to talk with students about library resources for theatre courses, and to give guidance on search strategies and other information needs. I love meeting with students in the classroom as it makes it easier for them to contact me for individual research help if they need it later. 

Consultation - I am happy to meet with you one-on-one - in person or online - to help support your own research needs, or to discuss new materials for our collection. 

Film projection - I am an experienced film archivist and small gauge film projectionist. I especially enjoy projecting film for students who have rarely or never experienced it. Although this doesn't relate directly to theatre courses, I'd be happy to project film for your class if you think the students would enjoy the experience.
