Trial & temporary resources

Drama Texts Collection

From April 28, 2021 until May 31, 2021, we have trial access to the Alexander Street Drama Texts Collection.

It includes over 5,500 scripts of plays from several hundred notable playwrights, including dozens each of Asian American, Latin American, and Native American playwrights and hundreds of Black playwrights.

Component collections also include North American Women's Drama, Contemporary World Drama, and Twentieth Century North American Drama, any of which can be accessed from Menu at the top left and then "My Collections," and each of which includes option to filter the search results by Playwright, Date, and other facets.

Printing is not available during the trial but would be with a subscription. See our linked page for more information.

This also comes with access to three related collections on the separate ProQuest platform:

The latter three collections can be searched in combination with each other but not in combination with the content on the Alexander Street platform.

Coronavirus Research

The Coronavirus Research Database from ProQuest is a new cross-disciplinary resource in response to the rapidly growing need for authoritative content related to the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 so that researchers can search and discover very relevant full-text articles, dissertations and other content from key publishers in one place.

The Coronavirus Research Archive from Taylor & Francis makes relevant research articles free to access in order to support the global effort to diagnose, treat, prevent COVID-19. This content will be updated regularly as more content is published. Taylor & Francis is also offering free access to several of its books relevant to the topic.

The Covid-19: Novel Coronavirus Outbreak content from Wiley Online Library is also free to access "in support of the global efforts in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and further research in this disease and similar viral respiratory infections." This content is also updated regularly as more content is published. In addition to articles related to the current outbreak, Wiley is also making a collection of journal articles and book chapters on other coronavirus research freely available

Access to these will be ongoing, though we feature them here for your further attention while they are so relevant.


Until June 30, 2021, due to the COVID-19 crisis, JSTOR is also providing us access to a much greater number of their journals. JSTOR offers complete full-text coverage from the very first issue of each of its journals but excluding the most current 2-5 years. We own permanent JSTOR access to approximately 880 journals. This temporarily adds approximately 1,731 others, many of which we have substantial, if incomplete, coverage through other platforms. 

Please let us know any thoughts you have about this.


We depend on your feedback in judging these trial databases.
