The library at CCDR houses nearly 10,000 shelved items, that include the books and pamphlets of the late Eleanor King and the late Gertrude Prokosch Kurath, both prominent in the fields of dance and dance scholarship. the CCDR library, a non-lending library, is open to the public two days a week. Wednesday and Friday from noon to four. The library is seperated into two sections. The "brown" library consentrates on the dance aspect of CCDR. The library contains books, journals, and pamphlets that are all related to dance. The "white" library is consentrated on all other studies related to culture. The library has books on Anthropology, Ethnomusicology, Folklore, Theatre, and many different cultures are represented. The books in these libraries are dedicated to research. We are currently in the process of adding the library catalog to this web page. Please check back after July 1, 1998.


The Audio visual archive houses commercial and research sound recordings; slides; films; and videotapes. Films include those made in the field by Nadia Chilkovsky Nahumck, renowned author and Labanotator and films made in the field by Gertrude Kurath. Videotapes include the 30-hour JVC Anthology of World Music and Dance, and the 8-hour WNET series Dancing(for which CCDR and its director were consultants.)
