World Theatre: 500 BCE to 1640 - Oakland Campus: Finding Articles

This LibGuide was created to help students in Prof. Jackson-Schebetta’s World Theatre class complete their research of a selected historical figure from theatre or performance.

How do I Find Articles . .

If you’re looking for articles on a topic, search an Article Database.

Databases are collections of articles that you can search by topic or subject.  Find a specific database in the Databases A-Z list, or if you’re not sure which database to search, use the Subject drop-down list to narrow by subject.  If you need help, ask a librarian for guidance by chatting online at Ask Us.

If you have a citation to an article, search PittCat.

PittCat will list all the journals we subscribe to either online or in paper.  If the journal is online, the PittCat record will offer a link directly to the journal database.   If the ULS doesn’t subscribe to the journal online, PittCat will list any paper volumes and issues we have of that journal.

Try the Journal search 

You can search by the journal title to find out if we have a particular journal online.   Remember  that not all journals or issues of journals are available online.  To see if we have a journal either online or in paper, search PittCat for the journal title.

If we don’t have the journal or article you need, request the article for free through Interlibrary Loan.
