Collections & Exhibits


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.
