Research Guides

Communication Research Guide

Resources in this guide are specifically focused on the five concentrations in the MSU Department of Communication: broadcasting, communications studies, journalism, public relations and theatre.


Databases, websites, reference books, and other resources related to drama and theatrical arts.


Reference Books

In addition to the reference books listed below, the Research Services Department is home to the Will and Jo Durst Script Collection. This non-circulating collection of scripts and librettos for plays and musicals is available to all patrons for in-library use, and is of particular use for theatre students and faculty. TIP: In the online catalog, limit your search to "MSU Reference Materials," "Title," and then search the title of the play.
