Performing Arts Scope
The Eberly Family Special Collections Library's collections encompass a wide range of materials pertaining to the performing arts. 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.
Materials within Special Collections can be located two ways: through the Catalog for individual items or books, and the Finding Aids for archival collections. Researchers will need an Aeon account to request materials that they wish to view, either in the Reading Room or through remote services.
For remote services, please request your materials through Aeon and reach out to us at email@example.com or call 814-865-1793 to discuss your request with the Research Services team. We are happy to provide limited remote service for researchers if an in-person visit is not possible!
