HIST 301: Historian's Craft (Petty, Spring 2024)

Starting Points: Using secondary sources to identify primary source music/sounds

Finding primary source songs & music in the catalog.

Search song OR music in the main catalog as a subject, and limit to 1800-1860. You'll find +200 scores.

This approach also works in WorldCat. Be sure to add your topic of interest as a keyword search, in addition to searching Music OR song* as a subject term.
