Oxford Music Online

A gateway offering users the ability to access and cross-search multiple music reference resources in one location. Contains the Grove Music Online, as well as The Oxford Dictionary of Music, and The Oxford Companion to Music.

Technical Note: Through a partnership with Sibelius notation software, over 500 of Grove's musical examples are now available in sound as well as notated examples. To listen, a small software plug-in called Scorch is required. Scorch is not yet loaded on public workstations in the library and can only be loaded by an administrator.
