Music Research: Music Databases A to Z

This research guide helps you to navigate various in-print and online music resources for your upcoming performances, papers and projects.

Access Databases @ Home

Off campus access is available for all the streaming audio databases. For best results, use a VPN (virtual private network) connection.  This makes off campus Internet traffic appear as if it is originating from on campus, and is a very secure, reliable connection. For instructions on how to set up VPN, go here:
