Research in Music

Students of music study music performance, the history of music, music theory, the teaching of music--or all of these at once. This guide to music resources in the library lists some of the most useful reference books and indexes for the field and gives tips for finding recorded music. It is not, however, a complete list of available options.

This guide is a starting point; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
