Global Performing Arts Consortium

With an interest in developing a global consortium of arts organizations, a number of institutions, including Cornell University and Columbia University, came together “to create easily accessible, multimedia, and multilingual information resources for the study and preservation of the performing arts.” Perhaps their biggest accomplishment thus far is the Global Performing Arts Database (GloPAD), which is a massive database that includes detailed multilingual descriptions of digital images, texts, video clips, sound recordings, and complex media objects. As one might imagine, using the database can be a bit complicated, but fortunately there is ample information provided here for the neophyte. As might be expected, there are a number of sample searches to get users started, including production titles such as Showboat, or people such as George Bernard Shaw.
