This guide provides information on finding sound and music recordings.
It specifically addresses the usage of:
- Hard copy sound recordings located at the University
- Online music and sound databases to which we subscribe
- Alexander Street (includes many genre databases)
- Database of Recorded American Music (DRAM)
- Extended techniques for finding records
- Even more recording resources at UMD
On the left sidebar in the Online Audio pages, you will find a collection of links to our most frequently used databases. On many pages you will also find a list of the contents in the left sidebar.
The center area contains the content of the pages and the right sidebar will frequently contain a "Did you know?" box.
Happy listening and please remember to fill out our survey below!
