1. Music Therapy doesn't have one specific database like some disciplines do. Since OneSearch can search all our databases at once, that would seem like the best choice, but of course, nothing in life is perfect.
2. You can choose to search a group of specific databases that are known to include music therapy articles in either Proquest or EBSCO (these will be different searches, so depending on your needs, you may do both of these things). In Proquest, choose Proquest Central, PsychArticles and PsychInfo. In EBSCO, choose ERIC, Education Research Complete, Health Source (Nursing/Academic), SocIndex, and RILM.
3. Google Scholar (scholar.google.com) should be able to also search all our databases and link you to full text, both free online and available through Wartburg. This is a fine choice, although you may be better served in PubMed.
Use phrases and be specific with your keywords; be flexible:
Search for synonyms like this:
