Welcome to the Music library dashboard. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Amy Hunsaker
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Amy for help with your assignments. This service is available to all Music students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and get a better grade.
Amy can help with: Locating music scores, brainstorming your research topic, developing your search strategy, capstone/thesis/dissertation planning, identifying relevant databases/journals for your research and literature reviews, and citation management. Amy can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Virgo is the Library catalog, where you can find books, articles, and more.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for Music research.
For most courses in Music our preferred citation style is Chicago Manual of Style (always check with your professor to confirm!).
