This guide will help you find Dance Resources in the University of Melbourne Library

Searching the catalogue

To find books on a particular subject, use a keyword search on the library catalogue. For example:

dance australia

modern dance

Keyword searching often retrieves a large number of results. You might want to limit your search by adding more words from your keyword list; for example:

dance australia companies

modern dance netherlands

Browse through the records retrieved and look at the hyperlinked subject descriptions that come with each catalogue record, e.g.

Choreography - Australia

Kylian, Jiri, 1947-

You can then click on a subject description to find more material with the same subject. Note that not all the results will be books; there may be other media such as CDs, DVDs or music scores.

Don't forget that you can have books sent from other branch libraries to your campus for pick-up
