I need to find articles.

Use the DATABASES below to find articles in theatre.

  • JSTOR  
    Full-text articles from journals, running back many years. Does not contain the most recent 3 to 5 years.
    Has Theatre Journal, full-text, from 1979 to 2003. (Recent issues are in Project Muse, see below).
  • Project MUSE - Humanities Collection  
    Has full-text articles from humanities (arts, theater, English, etc.)
    Often has the more recent journal coverage of journals also found in JSTOR.
  • Humanities Source
