Music Databases

An index or article database is a good place to start your research. It will assist in locating articles and chapters published in magazines, scholarly journals, books or trade publications. Indexes are useful as they present a range of resources from a variety of sources including books, chapters, articles and dissertations and each entry will list subject headings and an abstract - all useful in assisting you with your research. 

The following list features specific music databases. General academic databases such as JSTOR also include music coverage.
