Resources for students in Music 528.

Writing Help Resources on Campus

Getting Started

This site is intended to help students in Music 528 learn about the Music and Performing Arts Library and how to conduct research. The tabs above list various topics. Choose any one to get started, although if you are new to research you may find it helpful to work from left to right across the tabs. Notice that there are several tabs embedded under the "Finding Music Materials: Home" tab and under the "Finding Journal Articles in Music" tab.

If, during the course of your research, you encounter resources that we do not own, please request the item from the IShare catalog or via InterLibrary Loan. See the tab called "Materials Beyond Illinois" for more details.

If you are an international student, or find that you need more help with library terminology, writing etc., please see our International Student Guide to MPAL, which has even more helpful information.

Should you need any assistance, feel free to contact us
