The UCR Library collects resources in dance studies and related disciplines both courses and research conducted by our students and faculty. We offer subject-specific and general research educational services at the library and provide access to information from the UC Libraries System and beyond.
Books & Articles
Books are useful for getting a broad introduction or background information for topics in dance studies and related fields. Search by topic keywords in the Scotty (UCR) catalog or the Melvyl (UC) catalog.
Scholarly articles are carefully evaluated (peer-reviewed) by subject experts to provide reliable and credible information. Locate relevant articles by searching databases listed in the dance, art, music, and theatre databases. The most popular databases are listed on this page.
Most journals relevant to dance and performance studies are purchased for the entire UC Library system and can be browsed in the UC Journal Finder. Use the Scotty (UCR) catalog to find journals on campus.
