Our Library offers probably the largest and most varied open access research collection on dance and related subjects in the UK, covering many aspects of dance in a variety of formats and languages.
Its catalogue can be searched for books, journals, CDs, videos or software. These items are now located within the simple layout of this new purpose-built facility. The Library also holds the catalogue of the New York Public Library’s Dance Collection which it uses as an index to its extensive journal collection.
The Library produces Dance Resources on the Net, a guide on the web to good quality internet resources on dance. This can provide answers to a range of frequently asked subject enquiries as well as links to resources, like other catalogues and indexes, for the dance researcher.
