Music History II: Finding Articles

A guide to finding resources for students in Music History II

Finding Articles - Introduction

There are a number of ways to find journal and magazine articles. The WINDOW box below and the Music Databases box to the right offer different options. WINDOW searches many databases at once. It is usually the place to begin. But searching individual databases can be useful. It allows you to search databases that are more tightly focused on one subject. Often an individual database offers more options for refining your search than WINDOW does because the latter is searching so many databases at one time. Talk to a librarian if you need help determining how to proceed.


To find journal articles, the place to start is WINDOW.

WINDOW is the single search box on the library's homepage. You can also use the widget below.

WINDOW searches many research databases at once. To learn more about individual databases, see the box to the right.

For help with searching, visit the Search Strategies tab.
