Formerly The Music Index Online by Harmonie Park Press, this database provides comprehensive coverage of the music field and every aspect of the classical and popular worlds of music. With cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts for hundreds of periodicals, this resource is an invaluable resource for both the novice and scholar.
