Library QuickSearch

Professional organizations



slides for Sept 28 class


Newspaper databases are a great resource for finding reviews of specific performances. Consider including the following: work title; playwright or performer; critic's name. Also, use quotation marks to keep titles and names together.

  • Example: "The Children's Hour" AND "Lillian Hellman"

Print collections of theatre criticism


The library QuickSearch includes links to the individual plays in most of these collections, so if you are looking for a specific play, search there first. See the Plays and Monologues tab on the left for some strategies to browse playscripts in the UNLV Libraries book stacks.
