Off-Campus Access

If you live off campus, make sure to set up the BOL Proxy Server or VPN client on your laptop or home computer! This will enable you do conduct research and access full-text articles, databases, and other resources from anywhere.

Search Google Scholar for Articles

Unlike the subject specific databases, Google Scholar searches across a wide range of sources. It can be useful, but does not contain everything. Evaluate articles you locate there the same way you would any other sources.

Search Full Text Scholarly Articles

JSTOR can be a great first choice for finding scholarly full text articles online. In the advanced search, you can also pre-limit to articles and exclude book reviews. Performing Arts Periodicals Database also contains scholarly and popular articles on performing arts topics.

Search MLA International Bibliography

Use the orange UC-elinks tab to find full text or print copies of articles. The MLA International Bibliography is especially useful for articles on dramatists and thematic/topical readings of performance texts.
