Reference Sources for Small and Medium-Sized Libraries
Music reference sources continue to evolve, in part because of technological developments and a broadening interest in nonclassical genres, including world music. A few classic works were removed from the list because they are no longer widely available. Others have been subsumed by new print or electronic works. General sources are listed first, followed by sources specific to one or two genres of music. Major categories include blues and jazz, classical, country and gospel, rock and popular, and world music. Works encompassing more than two genres of music are included in the "General Sources" section. Several select online databases are included, and web links to related sources have been inserted into the narrative, as appropriate.
