Basic Music Research Tools

A collection of tools for music research.

Overview

Think Wikipedia, but with more credibility. While more recent encyclopedias may serve you well, do not forget to look at some of the oldest ones as well. Older encyclopedias and dictionaries can occasionally focus on different aspects of music than newer ones and may also mention some of the more obscure parts of music that are not as frequently studied in the present.
