Access digital music scores, theatre and dance performances… and more
Replicate Real-Life Performing Arts Experiences
When live performances aren’t an option, digital resources can help. As demand grows for e-content in the performing arts, so does the need for a trusted partner like ProQuest.
ProQuest has decades of experience helping libraries acquire electronic resources – and today, with theaters and concert halls temporarily closed, many of those libraries are turning to ProQuest to support their performing arts programs.
“I really appreciate the access and page navigation in Music and Dance Online: Classical Scores Library, because it encourages the students to browse a score the same way they might with a hard copy score in the library.”
Rebecca Marchand, Professor of Core Music Studies in Music History at Boston Conservatory at Berklee
