Music: Find Music Articles

These databases contain thousands of journal and magazine articles, books, chapters, dissertations, reviews, etc., about all kinds of music. Most are full text. If you find a citation for an article you want with no full text online, check the library catalog to see if UNC owns the print version. If not, you can request an electronic or print copy using Interlibrary Loan. Searching in a general resource like Articles+ is also useful for finding articles on music.
