Pauline Shaw Bayne provides a comprehensive manual on the intricacies of research methods and information tools in the field of music. * Robinson Music Library, (Online Blog) *
Teachers of music research classes and students or scholars who are learning, honing, or updating research skills have an urgent need for excellent and current sources, and this book fits those criteria. Bayne gives a masterful overview of present-day serious music research, and astutely acknowledges the vital importance of online resources early on. Bayne's book has extensive material specifically designed to help students. Any librarian who helps patrons do advanced research in a music library will perceive the extensive music reference experience that guided the author. * Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, June 2009 *
Ambitious and concisely written, A Guide to Library Research in Music will undoubtedly be a valuable resource for music librarians and music scholars in need of updating their knowledge; a worthwhile preparation tool for music graduate students who will be tested on music resources or source studies; and a helpful instruction guide for educators teaching music research and/or music information literacy. * Fontes Artis Musicae *
A work for students of music history and theory and those pursuing public or private music teaching and performance....Useful in any academic or special library with a large music focus. * American Reference Books Annual, May 2009 *
A Guide to Library Research in Music will be an important addition to the collections of music libraries and university libraries, as well as being essential reading for any student anticipating or embarking on postgraduate music research and for the reference and collection development librarians working to support them. * Australian Library Journal *
