Database trial and evaluation: Oxford Music Online
Until Sept. 12, the Zach S. Henderson Library is sponsoring a trial and evaluation of Oxford Music Online, which includes online, searchable, and combined full text of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians (second edition), The New Grove Dictionary of Opera, and The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz (second edition). Some articles have been updated since the print versions were released. It covers Western classical music most thoroughly and includes some coverage of popular music and music of non-Western cultures. It also includes over 500 music examples illustrating various entries. Sound examples require the download of the free Sibelius Scorch plugin available at http://www.sibelius.com/download/
We would love to know what you think about this database and its usefulness in support of our curriculum and/or faculty research. Please e-mail Jonathan Harwell, Collection Development & Assessment Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here at Zach’s News.
