Music: Finding Articles and Databases

This is a guide to web sites and library resources to support research and exploration in music.

Library and Other Databases

Specialized Research Tools for Music

  • Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology (American Musicological Society)
    Searchable bibliographical database of dissertations, but the dissertations themselves are not included.
  • Thesaurus Musicarum Latinarum (TML) (Center for the History of Music Theory and Literature, Indiana University)
    Searchable database of the entire corpus of Latin music theory written during the Middle Ages and Renaissance

Find the Full Text

journal articlesMost databases have some full text articles in addition to article citations. When an article is not available in that database, use Find It button button/link to determine whether and where the UWW libraries have it.

In Research@UWW, go to the View It section of an article's record.

In either case, look in the View It section next to see if there is a link to the online article. If it is not online, scroll down to the Get It section to see if the article is physically in one of the UWW libraries. If it is not available either way, you may order the article by clicking on the We Can Get it for You (Document Delivery/ILLiad) link which will appear in the Get It area.

If you are not in a database or Research@UWW, use the Journal Search (also on the libraries' homepage) to determine whether and where the Library has a particular periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper, etc.), then search the periodical for the desired article.
