University Libraries, University of Nebraska-Lincoln


The theatre arts and film collections support the teaching, research, and service activities of the entire university community. The primary audience is the faculty, staff, and students of the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts. The primary focus is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula for theater arts and film. Research needs of faculty and students are supplemented through Interlibrary Loan. Although the collection also benefits other citizens of the state of Nebraska, materials are not purchased with them in mind. While the collection focuses on works classified in Library of Congress call number PN and on audio and video materials, research support is also provided by other areas of the general library collection; departmental interests in voice, costuming and movement overlap with other UNL academic departments such as textiles, clothing and design; digital arts; film studies; broadcasting; English and foreign literatures; and musical theatre.
