This guide is here to help you research topics in music and music education. Music research encompasses the study of theory, techniques, history, musicians, time and tempo.
Using the tabs at the top of the Research Guide, navigate through the tabs to locate the specific type of resources you need including reference encyclopedias and dictionaries, books, journals and research databases, and web resources. Use the tab for Image Resources to find links to many online sources for images to use for study and research.
Circulating Books: Music books are located in the entire M section of the Library. M contains the books of music and musical scores. ML concentrates on the literature on music, analysis, and criticism. MT focuses on music instruction and study. The shelves containing the Music collection are located on the third floor. Be aware that many of the scores are too large to fit on the conventional shelving and must be placed in the OVERSIZE Collection, also located on the third floor of the library. Watch for the notation Oversize above the call number.
