World Music

Resources for researching music (and dance) of the world's many peoples and cultures!

Underutilized research tools/sites

  • HathiTrust http://www.hathitrust.org
    • FSU subscription database; be sure to log in using your FSU information to use it fully.
    • Indexes many books – provides full-text for many public domain texts
    • Great for historical research
    • Can create your own “sub library” within HathiTrust
    • Full-text searching
  • Google Books http://books.google.com
    • Also indexes many books, but not quite as organized as HathiTrust
    • My favorite Google Books usage: look for a quotation or topic that may be covered in a newer (non-Public Domain book), then check out the library’s copy of the book for full coverage.
