Music, Music Education, and Performance

This guide will help you successfully locate high-quality information for your research project in Music, Music Education, and Performance.

Locating Articles in Summon

Use the facets in the left-hand column to narrow your search. Search using your keywords, then restrict your search to 'Scholarly & Peer-Review' (for example).

Scan entries for new terms to use in your next search.

Search everything.

Use Summon to search across the entire library catalog (books, DVDs, government documents) and most of the library databases (journal articles, images, newspapers).

Locating Articles in Google Scholar

For more information about effective use of Google Scholar, see our handout.

Google Scholar Search

Using Specific Databases Instead of Summon

Remember that most databases search across disciplines. Pay attention to the names of the journals in your search results and chose articles suitable for your discipline.

Start with one of these databases:

Getting Articles That Are Not in the Library's Collection

I frequently use WorldCat to locate materials not in our library's collection. I find it especially useful for books. If you've never borrowed a book from another library, check out our guide to interlibrary loan (ILL). Or, go straight to the form.
