Music

Welcome

This guide is meant to serve students in the Music department (or taking a music-focused class) at Augustana College. Here you will find information about finding research articles, books, and other helpful resources.

This guide can help you:

  • Start the research process
  • Identify databases specific to music (including music education) 
  • Techniques for finding subject specific sources such books, articles, etc.

If you feel like you need some additional help while working on assignments for your music/music ed classes, you can reach out to the music librarian, María Emerson. You can communicate with her via email (mariaemerson@augustana.edu) or by setting up a research consultation appointment. Research consultation appointments are typically 30 minutes long, and take place in either her office or virtually. To reach out to María, click on the email button or the "Meet with María" button on the profile box on this screen.
