Music 11D: Introduction to World Music

Library Resources for Peer-Reviewed Sources

► Start broad and narrow things down: Library Search and JSTOR are great because they cover a broad range of subjects. As a searcher, you then can narrow down your results to your needs. Try some searches and use some of the strategies listed below the database links.

► Or Start by already narrowing down to Music sources: The following specialized Music databases allow you to dig more deeply into the subject matter. The advantage of using this type of database for this assignment, is that music is a given. As an example, if you search the phrase "Queer spaces," the results are going to be more broadly about music as it relates to this topic.   

For these databases, make sure to:

  • Filter to Peer Reviewed articles or journals 
  • Use the links to get to the full text: Look for PDF Full Text or the UCeLinks button (opens options)
