In mid-August we will begin moving materials from our special collections that are currently in offsite storage to a new offsite storage module. Requests for materials from offsite storage will be processed normally through Friday, August 11, however access to materials will be limited after that date. This process will continue throughout fall semester and will affect the availability of some materials. Researchers with time sensitive requests should contact the curators, collections specialists or staff working with that collection. We thank you for your patience as we complete this work.
The Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute supports researchers, students, and life-long learners in journeys of discovery that lead to new knowledge, scholarship, and creative works through exploration and deep engagement with extraordinary performing arts resources.
Our holdings include personal papers; costume, scene, lighting designs; technical theatre documentation; costumes; models of stage sets; photographs; posters; artwork; dance notation; video and sound recordings; realia and so much more, making this special collection an extraordinary resource for researchers, students, and life-long learners.
Theatre is the universal means of expression. It embraces all of the arts through which human minds seek to reach one another.
- Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, November, 1986
