Collection Guidelines: Drama: System Coordination

Collection development guidelines for drama.

System Coordination

A. Collection Development within the UW Library System

The Head of the Drama Library (drama selector) has primary responsibility for all areas of drama excluding literary criticism and non-English drama.  The Head of the Drama Library is also responsible for acquiring books on drama in English for the Odegaard Undergraduate Library and the Suzzallo-Allen Library.  

The English Studies librarian is responsible for collecting the majority of non-performance-based books on Shakespeare and other major English playwrights.  

The drama selector coordinates with various appropriate selectors in the library system in their acquisitions, particularly selectors who collect materials in a non-English language, as they are the primary selectors in those languages.


B. Cooperative Loan Arrangements

The UW is a member of the Orbis-Cascade Alliance. UW faculty, staff and students may request materials from other Orbis-Cascade Alliance members through the UW Libraries Catalog.
