We have a wealth of resources available for you through the Warren D. Allen Music Library. Our time together will be focused on finding journal articles, dissertations, and resources appropriate for your work in this class. Please explore the physical resources available in the Allen Music Library (books, scores, recordings, journals, etc.) as well as the databases and streaming resources available through our web page.
Note the column just to the left of this box. It's on each page of this guide, and provides links to relevant resources for music graduate students. I update this information as resources change, and as links change. If you find a dead link, please contact me -- and there's a link for that in the box in the right hand column.
I'm happy to meet with you one-on-one to help you refine your search strategies, and discuss your research. Feel free to make an appointment, or if it's a quick question, ask for me at the library's circulation desk. An appointment is your best bet for having my full attention, though!
Questions? Ask me!
Remember these intersecting circles from High School Geometry? They're BACK! It's a Venn Diagram. Think about the words you search as being in a Venn Diagram. That can help you form effective searches in library resources (pssst, and Google too!).
See the capitalized words (AND, OR, AND NOT)? These are called Boolean operators. In resources like the library databases, the library catalog, and Google, you can use those words to narrow or broaden your search.
Here are a few searches you may want to try:
music AND secondary NOT primary
music AND therapy NOT adults
