Music: Music Research Tools--Introduction
Introduction to Music Research Tools Available to University of Utah Students
Often, in order to even begin to choose a topic for research, we need to get the "lay of the land" and find out a few things related to a proposed topic:
- Are there enough resources related to my topic? And, can I get access to those resources?
- Is there so much research on my topic that I will be overwhelmed with resources or find it difficult to present my own voice on a topic?
These are important questions to take on before you choose a topic and as you continue to refine your topic after you choose it. Consider the following approach to these questions through the use of this three-part guide, detailed in the following sections: : 1. Beginning your research; 2. Delving deeper; 3. Reviewing the latest student research.
