Searching - Perform a keyword search on the catalog using the word “playscript.” All titles you find with this search contain scripts. To search for an individual play, add keywords from the title, as 'playscript death of a salesman.' To search for works by a playwright, add keywords from their name: 'playscript marsha norman.' Hint - Don't perform an AUTHOR or TITLE search - you will miss the many plays we hold in collections. For example, the keyword search 'playscript death of a salesman' locates 9 copies of the play in collections.
Our ebrary database also includes many ebooks on the topic, including play collections. These may be read off-campus, either online or by downloading to compatible e-readers, and substantial portions (scenes, monologues) may be printed. Instead of using the 'cbchawk' password for remote access it will prompt you for your student ID number so it can create an individual account for you.
