Hey, everyone! The Performing Arts Reading Room website has undergone a makeover. Our streamlined design is more accessible, mobile-friendly, and responsive — making it easy for researchers to find the information they need while discovering new resources.

Here are just a few highlights:

  • A simple landing page directing researchers to our various services and resources
  • Highlights from our free digital collections of sheet music, photographs, manuscripts, and other archival artifacts
  • Easy-to-find information on planning a visit, including a new request form for group orientations
  • A Researcher Resources page with links to our collections finding aids, research guides, and learning tools
  • A list of all the upcoming events you should attend, as well as links to past concert and webinar recordings

Please check out our spiffy new look! We also recommend referring to the main Library of Congress Catalog for discovering the breadth of our collections. And if you have any questions, please click the “Ask a Librarian” link on the left side of the new page.

Happy researching!
