Music 110: Introduction to the Art of Music - International Perspectives


Welcome to the Music and Performing Arts Library (MPAL) guide for Music 110. This guide has tips to help you navigate the research process and find library resources to help you excel in your research and writing. You can use this information throughout your time as a student and not just for this class!

Use the tabs to the left to navigate the guide and see what resources are available to you at MPAL.

  • If you are just starting a research project, we recommend checking out the first two tabs - Starting Your Research and Finding Background Information
  • Finding Music Materials at MPAL and the pages beneath it contains information to help you search the library catalog effectively and find the materials you need in the physical library
  • Check out Finding Journal Articles for help searching for scholarly articles in library databases

Course Reading and Listening

If your instructor has placed any materials on course reserve for your class - meaning they are on hold for anyone in your class to consult while in the library - you can browse them using the Course Reserves at MPAL link below!

Getting Help

If you have any questions, you can get help in-person at the service desk or remotely via chat or email. You can also use the buttons bellow to schedule an appointment or research consultation with one of MPAL's librarians to meet one-on-one and discuss your research. 

Research and Writing Support on Campus

Besides scheduling research consultations with MPAL's librarians, there are many other guides and services available at UIUC to help you succeed in your classes. We've compiled several recommended resources to support you in your research and writing.
