Acquisition Strategy

The SIS’s acquisition and collection strategy was developed in collaboration with representatives of theatre and dance studies and aims to cover the following points:

  • Selected literature in the field which addresses widely diverse research topics (e.g. theatre ethnology, shadow puppetry)
  • Research literature published outside Europe, the United States and Great Britain
  • A selection of periodicals unique as a collection in Germany
  • Providing access to e-book packages issued by publishers in the field for interregional use by academics and others

In collaboration with Specialised Information Service in other fields, namely musicology, art history and media and communication studies, we have reached agreements on how to further refine our acquisition strategy.
