We have temporary free access to the entire Drama Online collection.

The Library has subscribed to this resource for several years, with access to over 2,200 plays and books from the Core Collection and Nick Hern Books, but we now have temporary access to the entire content, including audiovisual materials such as the National Theatre Live and BBC films collections. 

You can search/browse the content in various ways on the Drama Online site.

For example, using the options at the top of the screen, you can browse by title, author, genre and time period, or if you click Find Plays on the home page, you can add in other search filters, such as number of roles or scenes. Select Context and Criticism for access to a wide range of e-books about drama.

As always, your feedback on this trial will be very welcome. Please email it, or post it as a comment on this blog post.

Note, if you are off campus, click on the link to Drama Online, then click LogIn, choose the Shibboleth login option, find Newcastle University from the list, and log in with your campus ID and password.
