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 three main library resources: WorldCat UMD, the RILM database, and the IBTD database. 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.
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 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.
