We are delighted to present Drama Online in its new home. Easier to search, browse and navigate, and supported by new and improved functionality, this digital library is now an even more essential study and research resource for your institution.
Users can access all the same high-quality content as before but will benefit from an improved experience including:
Please be aware that:

Title Drama Online (updated 20200423)
In order to support customers who have bookmarked the current URLs, for example in library catalogue systems or in reading lists, as well as search engines and discovery and indexing databases, we have set up URL redirects. This will mean that links to content pages (e.g. to playtexts, books, videos, and audio) and also links to Collections pages and Learning resources will be redirected to the corresponding page on the new Drama site.
Please note the redirects will live in our platforms indefinitely. DOIs will continue to point to the new platform too. This means that if you are using our MARC records (which include DOI URLs), you need not be concerned about the URLs. If you are using your own MARC records or are bookmarking pages using the OLD platform URLs, you are covered by the redirects.
List of URL redirects
The following types of URLs have been redirected to the equivalent place on the new site:
All personal user accounts (with usernames and passwords unchanged), are available on the new Drama Online site. You can sign in to your personal account with the same username and password that you used to access your personal account on the old site.
Saved bookmarks and tags in the My Bookmarks and Notes section
If you saved the URLs for your bookmarked items outside Drama Online before migration, you can now save these into your personal account on the new site. Our URL redirects will ensure that these URLs will point you to the corresponding content on the new site.
Saved Searches in My Account
The Search works differently on the new platform, so Search results will be different on the new platform: instead of multiple Search results for one play or book, you will get one Search result and there is functionality allowing you to jump to each hit within that play/book.
Search History in My Account
The Search works differently on the new site so this information no longer matches what is on the new site. There is no equivalent functionality to Search History on the new site.
