Your Assignment and this Guide


                                                          ROACH,MAX - We Insist! Max Roach's - Freedom Now Suite - Music

                        Original cover of the 1960 album "We Insist: The Freedom Now Suite"  This album, led by drummer Max Roach, was an important engagement of Jazz and civil rights in the United States.  The cover recreates a Lunch Counter Sit-IN.


This guide will help you find sources for your annotated bibliography and final paper. . Below are listed the main databases in Music, such as The Music Periodicals Index and RILM, which are the best place to  find articles about music.  Since this is an interdisciplinary class,  I've included other databases outside of music that might be useful, as well as list of selected research guides.   The history guides will be especially helpful for primary resources. The guide  also has tabs (on the left hand side) that cover some of the same topics we went over in our library session: evaluating information, search strategies, and information about citation and the Zotero bibliographic management system.  

Above all, please remember Librarians are here to help you!  Please feel free to contact me or make an appointment with me -- or with other librarians.
