Classical Music Research Guide

About this Guide

This guide is designed to give those researching classical music the basic tools and resources they need to begin.

An Advanced Classical Music Research Guide is also available for those who need more specialized resources and tools, such as advanced search tools & strategies, dissertation & other specialized music databases, audio database across the web, thematic catalogs, and foreign language tools.

You can find and access books, journals, and other media in Emory's catalog.

You can also find scholarly articles, primary sources, newspapers, and other information resources in academic databases. It is often more effective to consider what field the subject you are researching is in and  to select a database through "By Subject."

For more information or help, you can contact the music librarian, Peter Shirts, or an on-call librarian at the reference desk in Woodruff Library or through the link below.
