The collections of the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library and the other branches of the University of Maryland Library System feature many items that relate to Jonathan Larson's rock opera 'RENT', as well as the source material upon which it is loosely based, Giacomo Puccini's opera 'La bohème' and Henri Murger's novel 'Scènes de la vie bohème'. Explore the libraries' collections to learn more about Larson, Puccini, Murger, and their respective works through recordings, film, streaming video, scores, newspaper articles, and print resources. This LibGuide includes links to UMD library records and information, but the collections are open to perusal by the public. (Some items are only accessible to Guests of the UMD Libraries - to obtain a Guest Account, visit the circulation desk at any UMD Library branch.)
