New Index for Music Research: Music Index online

The Music Index, previously available to Ball State users only in print form, is now available online!  The interface is from Ebscohost, the same interface used by RILM Abstracts of Music Literature.  This means you can search the two databases simultaneously.  Simply open one, then click on "Choose Databases" and select the other (or more!)

Music Index includes information about music books, periodicals, and selected newspapers.  It began indexing in 1949, though the current database index includes only 1970 to the present.

By using the MultiLink button, users can go to the articles themselves
or to a page that links to the Ball State catalog (CardCat), WorldCat, or the Interlibrary Loan request form.

There is no limit to the number of simultaneous users, so you can be assured of always being able to use this resource.  You can find it on the Music Databases page of the Bracken Libraries' web site.
