Use Summon to search the library's collection of plays, vocal scores, sound recordings, DVDs, and other literature related to theatre.
UT students who obtain a Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative card have access to additional Kanopy titles and Hoopla, which offers streaming movies, television series, and music.
Please note that streaming media content is not indexed in Summon and users should search those interfaces directly to find and access audio-video files.
Use Google Scholar for a broader search. Set your browser settings so Google Scholar can let you know when its results are part of the library's collection.
If you want some insight on doing research at the university level, check out the tips and tutorials in our Introduction to Library Research.
If you find an article or book in Google Scholar you'd like to use that isn't in our collection, request it from another library.
