Expert Tips


  • Several important areas of the stacks are arranged alphabetically by composer, facilitating browsing. 
    • Composer biographies are located downstairs in the Music Library in the ML410 section
    • Bibliographies of composers are found in the ML134 section in Reference
    • Scholarly complete works editions are located in the M3 section of the stacks.
  • A quick way to find out if there is a bibliographical guide in the area you're researching is to select a subject search, start typing a name or topic, and add  "Bibliography" in a subject search, such as Hindemith--Bibliography.  This will help you find comprehensive and often annotated guides, usually broken down into categories to zero in on the aspects of the topic you're interested in.
