Theater is an important topic in our society as it offers entertainment and enlightenment. This is even more so due to BCCLS proximity to New York City. The ability to search and find theatrical productions that are professional (Broadway and Off-Broadway) as well as amateur productions including school productions is unparalleled among other areas of the country in diversity and sheer number of productions. It is a good time to take a look at the collections available to support the interest and pursuit of theater. It should be noted that these suggestions for weeding are merely suggestions and are not the final word on this topic by any means. This is just a guide.
The C.R.E.W. guidelines are as follows:
791 (Public Performance) is the Dewey number that focuses on theater. According to the CREW method, “this section can include memoirs of actors and performers writing about their craft and overviews or histories of film genres (e.g., horror film, best western movies). It also includes books of trivia based on popular movies and television shows.” Weed based on interest and condition (10/2/MUSTIE).
The purpose of this weeding tip is to provide an overview of what to acquire and possibly discard for theater.
For searching in Polaris, the term “theater” or “theatre” will retrieve between 1000 and 1600 records, far too many to look through quickly and efficiently. The use of the following subjects on the left window panel (facets) will greatly assist in narrowing your search. Some of the subjects that are relevant are: drama, actors, amateur theater, theaters, American drama, and acting.
