Our mission

Special Collections in Performing Arts (SCPA) at the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library of the University of Maryland Libraries acquires, preserves, and provides access to research materials that document performance, instruction, and scholarship, consistent with the university’s performing arts educational objectives. Our intended community for the collections consist of students, faculty, and external researchers in their pursuit of (1) new original research, (2) programming any level of performance, and (3) resources for genealogical inquiry or individual memory. We house, preserve, and describe our collections in adherence to the latest archival standards, while striving to offer convenient routes to access through an approachable reading room experience, numerous points of online access, and innovative public programming.
