Theatre Research Guide: Find Books

Other Sources for Books and Screenplays

Please note that if you identify a book that is not available in the UNO Library Catalog, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan.

UNO Catalog

o   Use the UNO Library's online catalog to locate books in the library.  Putting an author name in the subject field (last name, first name) will retrieve books that are primarily about that person (including literary criticism).  You can also search by keyword to search all of the information in the catalog records, for any reference to a word or phrase. 

  o      Be sure to jot down the call number for the book (e.g., PN2080 .A444 2003).  This tells you exactly where the book is located in the Library.  The Stacks Location Chart will show the correct floor and aisle for the call number.  Most literature books are located in the P section, down Aisle 2 on the 1st floor.

 Electronic books are also included in the catalog.  You can limit your search to e-books by selecting “Electronic Book” from the “Material Type” pull-down menu.  To see an e-book from the catalog, just click on the URL in the record to access an electronic version of a book (login required for off-campus access). 


 o   Electronic books can also be searched by going to these individual e-book collections and searching the full-text content:
