Top Databases for Articles in Music

What is an index and why should I care?

An index is a list of resources and where to find them, often with short descriptions of each resource called abstracts. Indexes are good to use if you have already done a general search in the library catalog but need more specialized material. Dartmouth often has online full-text access to articles you in the indexes below, but sometimes you will need to request the article through an interlibrary loan service like DartDoc. Some articles are not available digitally, but are available in print in the music library. Check the library catalog for print editions.
