Guide to resources relating to Music History

Where Do I Start?

The first place to start is usually the main search box at the Tomlinson Library Home Page. From the search box, you can use the "Books, eBooks, Media, Etc." default tab to look for books and DVDs, or, the "Articles" tab to find magazine or journal articles about a particular topic.  If you want to find out if we have a particular journal such as "American Music" use the "Journal Titles" search tab.
