Viewing GloPAD Records
The search results display in a table of thumbnail images with a line or two of information from each record (e.g. GloPAD ID, piece name, component type, or names of the people represented). Click on either the ID number or the thumbnail image to display the full record of information. Click on hyperlinked names to view further records of information about related pieces, productions, and people.

While in the full record, click on the thumbnail or the "image" tab to access the digital object, which may be a still image, audio or video recording, or 3-D model.
We are developing features for browsing by performing arts genre, geographical region, and time period, in addition to advanced search options. Please contact us with suggestions for specific browse and search mechanisms that you would like us to include.
