FINDING MUSIC CAN BE CHALLENGING, EVEN IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR!
Unlike text, a musical work isn’t about something. Usually, musicians are most interested in the work’s format (score, CD), genre (symphony, jazz ballad), and instrumentation (what forces perform the work).  Please ask us for help when you can't find what you need.  We have lots of tools to help!

      
     

    Looking for a composer?

    If you want to find works by a composer, do an AUTHOR search in the Tiger catalog.  This will bring up anything she has created (scores, recordings, writings, etc).

    If you want to find out about a composer, do a SUBJECT search. 

    For both of these searches, use this order-last name, first name:

    Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus

    Many contemporary composers have websites with sound files and biographical information.

    Welcome to the Music guide!

    Use the tabs above to roam through this guide.

    To help define your research topic, it often helps to consult some of the standard reference works before searching for books, music materials, and journal articles.

    Groves Music Online, found in the Oxford Music Online suite, is an essential companion and tool for scholars of classical, world, and contemporary music and musicians.  Coverage includes articles on jazz, opera, musical instruments, and American music.

    The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music  (also available in print) takes a cultural approach to its focus on the music of all the world's peoples. Each volume is arranged topically, regionally, or by ethnic group, and is complemented by an extensive index.
