Encyclopedias and handbooks are great resources for finding quick content about a topic or individual. Some of these books are available electronically and can be a good way to explore new topics or ideas.
Have you gone upstairs looking for music books or scores, only to find that our collection jumps from L to P?
Because of the specialized nature of our Art (N) and Music (M) collections, these resources have been separated from the rest of our books, and are available along the front of the building, on the second floor.
The Library of Congress system classifies music using the M call number range.
|M1497-1998||Secular vocal music|
|M1999-2199||Sacred vocal music|
Most operas, art songs, and song collections will be located in the range of M1500-1625, although some may be in other locations.
While searching the catalog, you'll find a number of books and videos with a location of Internet Resource, and a link in place of the call number.
Simply follow the link ('Click here for full text', 'View Streaming Video', etc.) to access the online version of these books and videos.
You will need to log in to view these items from off campus (and on campus, for videos). If you are having trouble, contact the reference desk for assistance (973-720-2116; email@example.com).
