Music Therapy - Courses & Research

Comprehensive search options: Google Scholar and OneSearch

Music Therapy Articles Video Part 1 covers Google Scholar and OneSearch

Google Scholar--all peer-reviewed journals at once

Choose Google Scholar if you know you want peer-reviewed journal articles from a variety of disciplines.

  • Full Text: Look for the link to full text on the right side of the results.
  • Not Full Text: Order anything not in full text through Interlibrary Loan (see video on the bottom of this page).

OneSearch--everything at once

Choose OneSearch if you want to see peer-reviewed journal articles, books, newspaper articles, and everything in the library's collection before limiting.

  • Full Text: Full text access should be indicated.
  • Not Full Text: If an article is listed as not having the full text, click the link to initiate the Interlibrary Loan process (see video on bottom of this page).

Individual Databases

Part 2 covers choosing individual databases

Choose databases from the Databases A-Z list when you want results from only one discipline area.

Ask the librarian for tips about which database to choose for what! Four examples of many are linked below.

Individual Journals

Part 3 covers limiting by journal

Choose to search inside one specific journal when you want to see what an important journal has said on your topic or you are tracking down a citation.

Click the link on the record page that shows the most access. Login if off-campus. For most of these, you can both keyword search and browse past issues.

Finding a Journal by Title

If there is another journal you'd like to search directly, click the Journals A-Z link to first see if we have access (or watch the video linked below if that's confusing).
