      How do I find scholarly introductions to organology?

      • New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians ***RECOMMENDED***
        (Trexler Library, level A, Reference, call # 780.3 N532n)
        Signed entries by experts. Authoritative source of information on musical instruments.

        How do I locate images from Michael Praetorius' Syntagma Musicum

        • Wikimedia Commons
          These images are in the public domain, and can be used for any purpose without concern over copyright, though as a courtesy credit should always be given to the source.

        How do I find scholarly books on my subject?

        • WorldCat
          Catalog of books and documents in libraries throughout the world. Watch especially for the AREA LIBRARIES designation.

        How do I locate peer-reviewed journal articles?

        • Academic Search Complete
          A good starting place for journals, and includes the full text of about 3000 journals. Limit to "peer reviewed" to find only scholarly articles. Back issues of journals begin as early as 1990. Recent issues may not be included yet, due to publisher agreement. Journals held in Trexler Library are marked accordingly.
        • JSTOR
          Includes extensive full text, all from scholarly periodicals.
        • Google Scholar
          An open-access web crawler that looks for content it identifies as "scholarly." Emphasis is on books and journal articles. Not always full text. Check our library's online catalog (see above) to see if Muhlenberg has access to the full text of a journal.
        • RILM Abstracts of Music Literature
          Scholarly articles on many aspects of gender and music.
        • Historical Abstracts with Full Text
          World history database. Good for European history and culture back to 1492.
