Children’s Theatre Company bestows archives to University of Minnesota

The Children’s Theatre Company has bestowed its historical archives – including production materials, directors’ notes, costume-design materials, and organizational records – to the University of Minnesota Libraries. The materials will be housed in the University’s Elmer L. Andersen Library and be part of the Libraries’ Performing Arts Archives. These archives, and others within the Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections unit, are available to University of Minnesota scholars and the general public.
Caitlin Bakker and Charlie Plain talk about using Experts@Minnesota to track research output.
