TA141 Eikrem

A guide to help students of TA141 find a monologue and play

What plays are in the library?

If you have already found your monologue or know a play that you would like to read, do a search in the catalog. You can search our own library, or add in Summit to find the play at a nearby college and have it sent here. 

Search tips:

  • Use quotes around the title of a play. Ex. "The Caucasian Chalk Circle" 
  • Check your spelling! 
  • If you can't find the play, try using advanced search to search by playwright. 


Getting a book we don't have through Summit

We love our collection at CCC Library, but sometimes you may want something that isn't here!  Don't worry, we may be able to get it for you. 

In the catalog search box on the homepage, select "CCC Library + Summit"  to start your search.

When you find an item that says "Check holdings", that means the book is not in our collection, but may be at another library. It is possible we do have the book but it is checked out but at another library. 

You should see a notice with a link to make a "resource sharing request". Select that link to have the book sent to CCC Library. You may need to log in first. 

After the item is requested, you will receive an email when the book is ready to be picked up. All books borrowed through Summit are checked out for six weeks. 

Pro tip: Select the "Show Institutions" button to see if other libraries have the item. There must be at least one copy available for the request to go through.  

Don't know what play to find?

If you like browsing the shelf best, you may find that this is difficult as there are many different places that plays may live. 

I brought some into class, but we have far more! 

Here are some general areas you may want to check out:

PN - Literature (General) PR British Literature PS American Literature

PN 1530-3299 - Drama 

PN 6111  - Play collections

PR 1272 - Play collections

PR 2800+ - Shakespeare

PR 39991-5990 - 19th century

PR 6000- 6049  - 1900-1960

PR 6050 - 6076 - 1961- now

PS 625 - Play collections

PS 991-3390 - 19th century

PS 3500-3549 - 1900-1960

PS 3550-3576 - 1960 - now

Note - the plays are often mixed in with other literature! 

Finally, you could try typing either "Plays" or "drama" into the catalog search box to see a selection of some of the plays we have. This is the least effective way to find a play, as it doesn't gather all of the plays.
