Theatre Librarianship. Occasional Publications Series Number Ten.
Johnston, A. M.
Developed to shed light on theater librarianship in Great Britain, this study defines theater libraries, illustrates the kind of work carried out in theater libraries and collections, reviews functional problem areas, and advocates better organization, financing, and staffing for these unique institutions. The study covers public, academic, private, and institutional collections to produce a critical account of the current state of theater librarianship. Appendices provide staff structures of operating libraries, classification schemes in use, examples of university courses in theater librarianship, and a range of services available from the libraries and their collections. A bibliography of 70 titles is included. (RAA)
