This comprehensive directory provides the most thorough coverage available on resources for the performing arts. In this single volume, researchers will find information on a wide range of topics relating to theatre, film, radio, and television. The book provides documentation on collections as well as individuals. Divided into two main sections, the first part of the book gives resource information on collections and institutions with major holdings in each of the fields under consideration. The remainder of the volume is devoted primarily to a who's who of leading academics, archivists, critics, historians, librarians, and scholars in the performing arts. Entries include major accomplishments, publications, academic and professional affiliations, as well as general biographical information. Completing the work is a listing of useful addresses of publishers, bookshops, organizations, periodicals, studios, film commissions, television networks, guilds, unions, and associations. A comprehensive index provides ready access to persons, institutions, and collections referenced throughout.
