Theatre Academy’s library collection includes a comprehensive selection of play copies and printed plays. The collection is unique in Finland: the library holds over 4000 different play copies. There are true rarities held by the library: copies that cannot be found elsewhere have been donated to the library. The play copies are catalogued in Arsca. The plays are in Finnish, Swedish, English, French and German. The library also provides electronic play databases, such as Näytelmät.fi. The databases can be found at the list of databases.
