Let Us Announce and Review Your Publications

We welcome review copies of bibliographies and other reference materials. We also welcome information on Internet resources that fit the profile of a music or dance reference resource.

Tell Us about Your Online Reference Sources

If you are involved in the creation or maintenance of a digital collection, music e-journal, composer website, music portal, or other online music reference tool, not currently covered in our database, please let us know. We are eager to help publicize your efforts.

Help Us Locate Scans of Print Sources Available Online

We hope to provide links to all public domain reference tools scanned as part of the Internet Archive and Google Books projects. If we have overlooked any titles you are aware of, please let us know.

Share Student and Other Unpublished Bibliographies

If you teach the graduate music research course at your institution and have your students prepare bibliographies, we are happy to post examples of your best results. We also welcome submissions from independent scholars and librarians interested in sharing their bibliographic research with others.

Help Us Write Critiques

The online bibliography of reference sources includes critiques for more than 1,880 entries. We are looking for partners to help write critiques to improve the usefulness of MusRef.
