Plays are often published in books with several other plays, sometimes by the same author and sometimes not. Often you can look for the title of the play in the library catalog and get results, but often that doesn't work. Indexes help you find the title of the book that includes the play you're looking for. Then use the OSU and Summit Catalogs to locate a copy of the book.
If you cannot locate the book you want in the library or through the Summit system, use interlibrary loan.
These books are available in the Valley Library. Use the call numbers to locate the books on the shelves.
