Both the Albert Alphin and Stan Getz Libraries contain a wealth of plays, scripts and librettos, though the Alphin Library does hold a much larger collection. On this page, you'll find a small sampling of the types of materials that you'll find on our shelves.
Some helpful notes about Call Numbers:
- Plays are categories along with other types of literature, so you'll find them within the P section. Some main categories you'll encounter are:
- PN: Used for general literature - where you might find play collections
- PS: American Playwrights
- PR: English Playwrights
- Scripts to Musicals or Musical Theatre Librettos are classified under the ML section, because they are accompanying a musical work.
- They are commonly found with the call number ML50.
- You might also find collections of song lyrics from major lyricists and songwriters, under the prefix ML54.6
