MUSI5300: Research Techniques: Online Music Resources

Why Not Google?

You might be wondering why you can't just Google the information you are looking for.  It's all online, right??  

Not so fast!  Things to remember about such a BIG search:

  • Information Overload (too much information to sort through)
  • Quality v. Quantity (anyone can make a webpage... is the source any good?)
  • Show Me The Money! (sometimes you'll have to PAY to get the information)

While our databases might be a little different from what you're used to, they can help to eliminate some of these obstacles.

Another way to make searching easier is to stick to trusted sites:
