NEW: Films on Demand

You probably already know about the extensive collection of DVDs on the library’s top floor but there’s a new addition to the collection . . . approximately 10,000 streaming videos, from Films on Demand, available through the library’s online catalog. These videos, available to LC users both on campus and at home, are on a wide range of subjects: history, art, sociology, religion, literature, cookery, etc. Examples of some of the titles are: The Man Who Discovered Egypt, The Truth About Exercise, Food Speculator, and Discovering the Art of Korea. Explore the collection to see what you can find of interest to you or to assist with classes.

New Resources for the New Musical Theatre Major

The Theatre Arts department will be offering a major in Musical Theatre beginning in 2014, and Lewis Library is getting ready. Loren Pinkerman, our Director, has just purchased many complete vocal scores—from classic musicals like The Music Man and The Sound of Music to more recent hits like Hairspray and Sister Act—to add to our collection, along with vocal selections for more shows. 

You’ll find a list of the musicals for which we have vocal scores, and information on some of our other musical theatre resources, on the library guide here.

Our online catalog will help you find call numbers for these scores (most are in the M 1503 area on the upper level of the library) and also books, e-books, CDs, and DVDs.

Please see the reference librarian for help in finding sources on a specific musicals (including reviews), composers, etc. We have many resources on musical theatre—and we’ll be getting more!
