GSA (performing arts including dance, and theatre and performance)

Your subject page provides links to key subject resources available in the library and online, accessible both on and off campus, guides about using information for your studies and links to additional resources. 

Subject Resources


Databases are online searchable resources which the library subscribes to. They provide access to a range of information including journal articles, newspapers and trade papers. Some databases will link to the full text of articles, others will only provide the reference.
Please contact your Information Skills Librarian for advice about searching databases.

Reading Lists

The simplest and quickest way to find good quality academic reading relevant to your lectures and assignments is to search for the online reading list using your module code. This will link you directly to eBooks and articles in eJournals as well as trustworthy websites.  These lists can also be accessed via SurreyLearn.

The Archives and Special Collections at the University of Surrey provides access to a vast range of dance-related resources including manuscripts, letters, diaries, photographs, artworks, periodicals, rare books, ephemera, music scores, dance notation scores, scrapbooks, costumes, objects, film, music, interviews and business papers.
