Q

I am an Honors student in Computer Science and I was having trouble trying to get hold of any sources to do with theater environments

Good day, I am an Honors student in Computer Science and I was having trouble trying to get hold of any sources to do with theater environments (setup, stage management, lighting controls, etc). I would like to include the information within my literature review section and I was hoping you could assist me with relevant databases or journals I could look up online.

Answer

Try searching the various databases, e.g. EBSCOhost (Academic Search Premier), Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar

Find the links to these at

http://ru.za.libguides.com/databases

 For example  search using the search string: 

SU theat* AND (stage management OR set up OR lighting) -----------[the SU before theat* stands for Subject]

You will no doubt have to add other terms, e.g. control/design, etc – depending on exactly what you are looking for

 You will need to be specific in the search terms you use (remember that when searching for theatre you should search both the American and English spellings -   theatre OR theater  (you can do this by using the truncated search term:  theat*)

 Eg. Link to search on Ebscohost for the above search string

http://0-web.ebscohost.com.wam.seals.ac.za/ehost/results?sid=f6ae9a86-ca64-40fa-8818-b1856497a012%40sessionmgr104&vid=3&hid=121&bquery=SU+%28theat*%29+AND+%28stage+management+OR+set+%22up%22+OR+lighting%29&bdata=JmRiPWFwaCZ0eXBlPTAmc2l0ZT1laG9zdC1saXZl
