duke_archival_object_metadata_adderMy work involves a lot of problem-solving and problem solving often requires learning new skills. It’s one of the things I like most about my job.

Drama Online

Humanities - Wed, 2016-09-21 13:35

dramaonline3

We now have access to the Core Collection of Drama Online, a resource for finding full texts of plays.  It Includes full texts of plays from across the history of the theatre, ranging from Aeschylus to the present day.  It also includes non-English-language works in translation, scholarly and critical editions, first night program texts, and critical analysis and contextual information. Critical interpretations, theatre history surveys and major reference works on authors, movements, practitioners, periods and genres are included alongside performance and practitioner texts, acting and backstage guides.

You can browse by plays, playwrights, genres, periods, context and criticism, and by theatre craft.  Advanced search options also allow you to search by type, playwrights, genre, period, theme, and setting.

Each play in the collection includes a production enquiry, which gives helpful information on who to contact to get performance rights for the play.  Many plays also include useful tools, like a Character Grid that can be used to see only the lines of a given character.

Another great tool is the Words and Speeches tool that shows how many words and speeches are spoken in different acts of the play.

Currently we don’t have access to all the Nick Hern plays or the videos, but it’s quite likely that our access will expand in the next year!

Designing Academic Figures and Posters (DVS Workshop Series)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2016-09-20 17:30
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

Figures and other forms of visual representation can have a huge impact on the communication of research to a broader audience.  A well designed figure can summarize research, captivate audience interest, and/or explain complicated phenomena and processes.  Likewise, becoming familiar with good strategies for poster design allows researchers to take full advantage of the opportunity to network with colleagues and promote their own research.  This workshop will cover basic considerations for designing effective academic figures and posters, including use of color, layout, fonts/typography, and software choices.
