Music 511: Foundations and Methods of Musicology I

Getting Started

Welcome to the Music and Performing Arts Library (MPAL) guide for MUS 511: Foundations and Methods of Musicology I. This guide has tips to help you navigate the research process and find library resources to help you excel in your research and writing.

Use the tabs to the left to navigate the guide and see what resources are available to you at MPAL. Choose any one to get started, although if you are new to research you may find it helpful to work sequentially through all the tabs.

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.

Beyond This Class

The following guides will be helpful when you start to prepare for researching and writing your thesis/dissertation and for your comps/prelims.
