Music encyclopedias, periodical indexes, and more

A few music-specific resources relevant for this course:

  • Music Index Online
    • Overwhelmed by searches in some of the other resources? Music Index may help you focus your search. 
    • Be sure to use the subject terms in citations to focus your search.
    • Music Index includes citations for articles on music topics from journals on a variety of subject areas (not just music periodicals and journals).
  • Performing Arts Periodicals Database
    • Again, overwhelmed by searches in other resources? IIMP may help focus your search.
