Parks Library Dance Resources

Dance Databases

Because there is not a dance major at ISU, we do not have databases that are dedicated solely to dance. However, we do have several databases that can be used to find dance resources. Also, I have listed below dance journals that we have access to. If you ever want an article that we do not have direct access to, you can always do an interlibrary loan to get what you are looking for.

Journal Access (and a few magazines / trade publications)

These are some dance journals that we have some access to. We can also, if you don't know, get pretty much any article that you are interested by doing an interlibrary loan (ILL). Here is a link for the ILL login. If you have questions about ILL, feel free to ask either myself (Mike) or the ILL borrow desk staff.
