This statement will define the limits of the theatre and dance collection in the Fine Arts Library (FAL). Additional material to support the department will be found at others of The University of Texas Libraries (see also General Considerations): Perry-Castaneda Library, The Undergraduate Library, the Classics Library, and The Architecture Library.
Some FAL titles may duplicate the holdings of the PCL Main Library, where they are purchased as literature. Some works on theatrical costume will also be added in duplication of PCL holdings. PCL will continue to be the primary location for dramatic literature (texts of plays) for critical, textual, and historical studies of that literature, without reference to original language or performance criteria, and for the history of dress and fashion. The literature of drama and studies of the literary aspect of drama are discussed in the various literature statements. Dance as exercise and dance injuries are held at PCL and are included in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Statement. Theatre and dance of Latin and South America are covered by the Statement for BLAC.
There is a large number of plays for children and youth in the Fine Arts Library to support the department's teaching and production of plays for children and youth.
Relevant other locations: The Hoblitzelle Theatre Arts Collection at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center is a major drama resource in the United States.
The University Interscholastic League, a confederation of high schools in Texas, holds an annual one-act play context and maintains a library to loan these plays to high schools in Texas. Department of Theatre and Dance students can use these titles as well (471-9996).
