Provides links to and information about the best resources for music researchers at Idaho State University

Best Resources for this Project

Here is a list of some electronic resources you can access through the Library which should be most useful for this assignment:

Start with background information using:

Includes Grove Dictionary of Musical Instruments, Grove Book of Operas, Dictionary of Opera Characters, Grove Book of Opera Singers, Oxford Dictionary of Music, Oxford Companion to Music, and more.

Then use the library catalog to find scores (print and electronic), books about your composer and his work, sound recordings, video, and more:

If you can't find your score in the library catalog, try our electronic collection:

Then, search for journal and magazine articles, reviews of performances and recordings, etc. using these databases:

A few other resources for audio, video, scores, and more:

Still not finding anything?  Try WorldCat, a collection of more than 70,000 library catalogs.  It can help you identify books that we don't have at this library.  Using Interlibrary Loan, we can probably borrow the books and articles we don't have from another library.

Dissertations and Theses -- you probably won't need these, but here are a couple of databases that might contain some or all of the text of a dissertation you find cited in RILM.
