The Carson Brierly Giffin Dance Library was founded in 1972 by art supporters Justin Brierly and Martha Faure Carson. With a focus in the documentation and representation of dance, specifically in the Rocky Mountain region, the collections provide primary and/or educational resources to researchers and the public. The collections include: rare books, souvenir programs, video tapes, posters, musical scores, and oral histories on a wide variety of dance forms. The dance forms represented in the collections include social, theatre, ethic, ritual, and dance-drama along topics such as theater history and design, costumes, kinesiology, and dance therapy. The collections are housed and managed by the Special Collections and Archives Department of the University of Denver.
