A Guide to Library Research in Music introduces students to the process and techniques for researching and writing about music. It provides examples of different types of writing, offers a thorough introduction to music literature, describes various information-searching methods and library-based organizational systems, and explores the wide array of music resources. This second edition discusses the latest innovations in library catalog searching, new matters in digital technology, and the expansion in musical genres for library research. The book's organization allows for three independent tracks of study. Part 1 treats essentials of the research process, explaining starting-point resources such as library catalogs, dictionaries, and bibliographies. It addresses scholarly documentation, the use of style manuals, and basics of copyright. Part 2 develops skills and strategies for library- and Internet-based research, describing database structures and library catalogs, subject searching in catalogs and journal indexes, keyword searching techniques, related-record searching and citation databases, and the use of experts and thematic catalogs. Part 3 discusses the organization of a music library, emphasizing score collections, books and journals in music literature, and music teaching publications.

Pauline Shaw Bayne is retired assistant dean of libraries and professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Two web-based resources created by her--UT Song Index and UT Analysis Index--continue to be maintained by the staff of the George F. DeVine Music Library, which Bayne managed for 36 years. She has also written articles about moving library collections, digital audio reserves, delivering instructional media, and computer-based training for library staff. Edward Komara is Distinguished Librarian at the Crane Music Library, the State University of New York at Potsdam. His contributions to music research have been in jazz, blues, rock, and other kinds of music for which recordings are the primary sources. His previous book for Rowman and Littlefield, 100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own (with Greg Johnson), received the 2016 Vincent Duckles Award from the Music Library Association for the best book-length bibliography or reference work in music.
Pauline Shaw Bayne and Edward Komara demystify the most daunting aspects of music research in an update that remains approachable for beginning researchers.--Misti Shaw, Head of Music Library Public Services and Outreach, Cook Music Library, Indiana University
