Music Library and Research Skills introduces concepts of music research through an understanding of the tools that provide information about music: what types of sources exist, how they are arranged, and how they may best be used to undertake research.
All types of music reference sources are covered, and each chapter includes a narrative discussion about the sources along with listings of selected titles. Music Library and Research Skills is broadly inclusive in its subject matter, with coverage of popular music, jazz, and world music sources as well as sources on western art music.
The book is filled with examples, or "real-life scenarios" that demonstrate use and relevance of selected tools.
