Welcome to the guide for Music

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Music. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in Music.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Music. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.

Librarian Liaison for Music.
