This guide is designed to help you use the library to locate scholarly and reputable sources to support your program notes and other papers on the arts. For simplicity's sake, I will focus on four main library resources: WorldCat UMD, the RILM database, and the International Bibliography of Theatre and Dance. The I'm stuck tab also has some additional resources you might want to try, including LexisNexis, JSTOR, RIPM, and various full-text collections of historical newspapers. You can use the tabs above to learn more about these tools. As a summary:
For many topics related to this course, those three will suffice. However, depending on your topic, there may be other tools that will be helpful. If you are stuck, check out the I'm Stuck tab of the guide for some suggestions. If you have questions or would like further guidance, please contact me. My profile with contact info appears on every page of this guide and you can contact me however you like.
