Information Literacy in music research, performing, and education

Introduction to Music Research

Music students early in their studies are usually lacking three primary skills in researching music.  1) Knowing where to look, 2) Understanding what they find, and 3) Adopting an order/process of research that is efficient and robust.

This two-part workshop addresses all three skills in a practical approach.  Beginning with a general area for research, students will utilize a step by step approach narrowing their topic as they progress through increasingly specific resources.  The student will come away with a usable topic, a preliminary bibliography to continue their research, and a set of strategies to encourage efficient research methodology in all their subsequent coursework.

This workshop allows each student to have a unique topic and so is excellent for writing intensive projects and courses.
