SEARCHING TIPS

  • Use Google Scholar, rather than Google, to find articles directly linked into our collection.
  • Always put a phrase in quotes so it searches those words together, i.e. "international music" or "Irish jazz."
  • If you find a good article, look for other articles in the bibliography which may help you find more information.
