Theater Research

all things theater, drama, performing arts

Theater and Performance Databases

ArticlesPlus is an excellent place to start your research. It includes the contents of our two main databases for the study of theater, International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance Performing Arts database (IIPA) and MLA International Bibliography.

Many of the databases below are not included in ArticlesPlus, so it's worth the time to have a look around.

Databases that cover literature

More Databases - all disciplines

Alden Library has many resources to help 'contextualize' your research in the humanities.  The list below is recommended databases, but we have many ways to discover alternative databases:

  • Go to our Database page (from the home page).  Databases are listed by discipline.  
  • Check out Subject & Course Guides by Discipline; guides contain useful information on any aspect of the discipline; created and produced by Ohio University subject librarians.
