Dance: Book Catalogs

CoVID-Quarantine electronic sources


1. Library Catalog - two verions:  "ALL" search will give a smattering in all formats (articles books, etc);  "BOOKS and MEDIA" limits this to those areas, generally a more reliable search.

 Using the catalog - use your natural language to find ONE book that's relevant,  then go into the record and click the subject headings assigned to that book to find more like it.

These are all library subject headings for dance

  • Modern dance -- History.   
  • Postmodern dance. 
  • Judson Dance Theater [or any dance company or performer] -- History.

2. Worldcat - combined catalog of all libraries

 Note--THIS IS NOT THE FREE VERSION!  Worldcat locates books not owned at Duke for interlibrary request and archives of collections.  There's a "libraries with this item" link that shows NC libraries first.
