Dance: Books & More


All books and most of the articles, videos, and music in the library's print and online collections can be searched using the library's main Discovery search box. You can choose a tab to limit in advance, or use the limits on the left after beginning a search.

Discovery also offers the option to expand your search to libraries worldwide and then links to "interlibrary loan". Most books arrive in 1 to 3 weeks and can be picked up at the main library desk. Articles generally arrive in about 3 days and are emailed directly to your OCU email account.

Reference books can also be useful sources, but may not appear in a search for a specific topic. Some examples included here are encyclopedias of dance. The Oxford Reference Online search searches within several such online reference books.
