EMBTA's collections function as search helps for students whose instructors have requested that certain materials be added to EMBTA. Students can search by a particular collection to access all the resources their instructor has requested. A collection is usually based around a particular play, historical figure, or theater.
To see a list of collections, visit Collections.
Like collections, exhibits can be developed by user request. They are meant to help answer specific research questions (rather than simply provide background on a person or play). For example, an exhibit on 17th century male actors in female roles may include items relevant to many different plays and actors.
