Formats range from audio-visual items like photographs, film, and digital recordings, to books and manuscripts that span from the medieval era to modern times. These important documents detail the history of performing arts in many areas and give researchers insight into the creation process of the artists, performance practice, and behind-the-scenes workings of musical and theatrical groups.
