Plays & Play Indexes -- Key Resources

The following sources are useful for locating the texts of plays, including screenplays, published in anthologies, collections, or periodicals.

UCF Library Catalog

  • For a specific play, try a keyword search for the playwright's surname and one or two keywords from the title. DO NOT restrict your search to the author or title fields, since such a search might miss the play where it is part of a collection.
  • Browse the call numbers beginning with "P" from the results of a search by Subject Heading "drama", e.g., PT 1-4897 German Literature
  • For individual screenplays, browse the call numbers beginning with "PN1997" through "PN 1997.85" from the results of a call number search or a search by Subject Heading "motion picture plays"
