Graduate Playwriting Research at Hollins (2024)

This page provides guidance to students in Hollins University's graduate playwriting program: how to find materials in the library, and how to do research using sources both in and beyond the library. Welcome!

Using OneSearch

When searching OneSearch, avoid using "Title" searches. Search the words that make up the title of your play in Books (results will include e-Books).

Search Tips

  • Not sure of the whole title? Search just using a few key words:

    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
  • Common one-word title, zillions of  results? Add AND + the playwright's last name:

    Wit AND Edson
  • Common multi-word title, still zillions of wrong results? Put exact titles in quotation marks:

    "In the Blood"
