LIBRARY GUIDE TO Dance 3380: Contemporary Dance History

Find Books

Library OneSearch
Use the catalog to find books, videos, recordings, and goverment documents we have at the library.

MelCat
A statewide catalog of many of Michigan's libraries. It allows you to request books at another library be sent to Kresge Library for you.

Finding Dance articles
 
International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance is your best bet for locating a number of journal articles on your topic. Below is a video showing how to conduct a basic search. Note that if you choose to limit to "scholarly journal articles," that could remove articles from Dance Magazine and other reputable sources, so do so carefully!


Searching specific journals

You can also conduct a search just within a specific journal. The video below explains how!
 

Dance Magazine is only partially indexed in our dance databases. To find older material, try an advanced search in Google Scholar

You can also try the New York Public Library's catalog, which has indexed issues of the magazine: http://catalog.nypl.org/search/X Below is a sample search for the author "Wendy Perron," limiting the results to "Dance Magazine."

Evaluating Websites
Who Is Hosting This has an excellent 60-second guide to evaluating websites. Check out their tips!

For this type of project, the key concerns might be authenticity and authority: Is this website the official site of the dance group/choreographer/dancer/etc, or his/her estate, or is it a fan site? Is the site connected in any way to an academic or cultural institution? (Think museum, university, theater, etc.)
