  • Library Web Site N.B. •Catalogue •Journal Portal •Databases A-Z •Searcher •Subject Portals •How do I? •Study & Research Help Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Subject GuidesStarting point forrelevant library &web material - databases - journals - free webSee ‘Music’ subject guide Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Music in the Boole Library• Books, journals, theses, scores etc• Online databases and e-journals• Music Collection: - Music Online, Naxos Music Library - CDs: 770 titles - Vinyl: 3000 approx - Cassettes: 467 music titles - Scores/sheet music• Audio-visual material DVDs (1900 titles), VHS (2407 titles) Blu- ray: (40 titles so far)• Q+3 Multimedia area -View DVD, Blu-ray and VHS, listen to vinyl -Access audio and visual material from the web• Special collections & archives
  • Catalogue: Tips• Title searches: word-perfect• Keyword searches: you can ‘modify search’ e.g. material type ‘Video/DVD’• Consider synonyms, American spellings• Use the ‘bag’ to export records• Use ‘Worldcat’ link to search beyond UCC• Use ‘My Library Account’ to request books on loan, to see your reading history, to access e- resources from home, and to save ‘lists’ of books Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Off-Campus Access• Use ‘My Library Account’ (like when renewing or requesting books)• Name + student number + six digit password (alpha-numeric)• N.B. You should access e-resources through the Library web pages so that the ‘Your Library Record’ screen will appear• Contact Information desk on Q floor for queries e.g. forgotten password• See: Learn about Pin Numbers Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • What if an item is not in UCC Library?• Google it: book/article title or author and you may be lucky• Inter-library loan See: Inter-library loans service• Visit other libraries: ALCID, SCONUL or ‘Cork PAL’, ‘Music PAL’ Check with customer services in Boole Library See: Accessing other libraries Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Journals• Serials/Periodicals: published continuously• New research, cutting-edge• Print and/or electronic (30,000+ e-journals in UCC)• ‘Peer-reviewed’/‘refereed’ =academic journals ‘The process by which an academic journal passes a paper submitted for publication to independent experts for comments on it’s suitability and worth; refereeing’• Quality control: Papers accepted/rejected based on contribution to the field/new ideas, bias/conflicts of interest, suitability for journal etc. Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Other Periodicals• Popular Magazines: (articles written by journalists) - Newspapers - Substantive news e.g. ‘The Economist’, ‘National Geographic’, ‘Irish Music Magazine’, ‘Folk Roots’, ‘Journal of Music in Ireland’ - Journal of opinion e.g. ‘Magill’, ‘Phoenix’ - Magazines e.g. ‘Empire’, ‘Hot Press’, ‘Rolling Stone’ etc.• Trade Journals (specific industry, enable practitioners share market and product information within an industry) e.g. ‘Restaurant Business’, ‘Chemical Week’, ‘Billboard’, ‘Prosound news’
  • Finding a Journal ArticleExample:Burke, P. (2010) ‘Rock, Race, and Radicalism in the 1960s: The Rolling Stones, Black Power, and Godards One Plus One’. Journal of Musicological Research, 29(4): 275-294.• Check the Journals Portal first• See online tutorial: ‘Learn how to find the full-text of a journal article’ on the ‘Study & Research Help’ page
  • PracticeFind the following article online:Napier, J. (2007) The Distribution of Authority in the Performance of North Indian Vocal Music’. Ethnomusicology Forum, 16(2):271-301. Is it also available in hard copy in the Library? Password: Qfloor1
  • What are Databases? 1.• Collections of logically related data, designed to meet information needs of one or more users e.g. library catalogue• A bibliographic/research database: usually an electronic index to journal articles and books, containing citations & abstracts. Sometimes information about conference proceedings, theses, and other information formats is also included. Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • What are Databases? 2.• Sometimes the full text of the articles is included, or links to the full text.• Some are indexing and abstracting only: i.e. metadata – not necessarily a link to the full text.• Some are general e.g. Web of Science, others are more subject-specific e.g. Medline, RILM.• Essential for literature searches.• Other types of databases: ARTstor for images, Music Online for streaming music, ACLS & Ebrary for e- books Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • How are Databases Organised?• Records: one record for each article, book etc.• A field is the basic unit of entry in a record• Journal article fields might include: - Title, Author, Keywords, Source, Publication Year, Abstract etc.• For each record (e.g. article) added to the database, these fields must be included, and data is entered in that format.• Searches of the databases can be narrowed to one or more fields: e.g. Author, Title, Author + Keyword, Keyword + Publication Year etc. Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13

  • Search SkillsBoolean Operators: AND, ORpoverty AND crimecollege OR university Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Search SkillsBoolean Operator: NOTcats NOT dogs Some Youtube videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tm-sDKCnO4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1LpTbzSKd0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsSZps3NH-M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vube-ZcJFk4 Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Search Skills• music AND minimalism• music AND minimalis*____________________________________________________• Music AND (“MP3 player” OR iPod OR walkman OR iPhone OR “smart phone” OR “portable device”)____________________________________________________• jazz AND (women OR woman OR gender OR feminin*) ____________________________________________________• (music AND brazil*) NOT (samba OR “bossa nova”)
  • How to Find Relevant Databases• Use Databases A-Z: (See ‘Search the Library’) Drop-down menu ‘Browse databases by Subject area’. Use Music list as a starting point.• Depending on your topic, you may also need to search other lists e.g. – Humanities• You could also check the Subject Guides• See online tutorial: Find the best databases for your assignments and research on the ‘Study & Research Help’ page Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Databases without full-text• Indexing and abstracting databases• Metadata – descriptive information i.e. not necessarily a link to the full text• Full-text might be available in UCC through another database/resource• Check the Journals Portal to find out (or Searcher)• You should use as many databases as possible for a thorough literature search (don’t ignore something important just because full-text not readily available) Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Bibliographic Databases/Indexes• Try: - RILM - OCLC incl. Worldcat, Articlefirst - MLA International Bibliography - Arts and Humanities Citation Index (Web of Knowledge) - British Humanities Index - Historical abstracts - International Medieval Bibliography - ASSIA (Social Sciences Collection) - Film Indexes Online - Bibliography of British & Irish HistorySame applies to many of the references you might find through Google Scholar!
  • Exercise:• Find the following article: Warnes, A. (2008) ‘Black, white and blue: the racial antagonism of The Smiths’ record sleeves’. Popular Music, 27(1):135-149.• Look for scholarly material on the subject of music in the films of Stanley Kubrick Try: Wilson Omnifile, Project Muse, JSTOR, Academic Search Premier, Oxford Music, Web of Knowledge, RILM etc.
  • Getting Started 1.Example: Music in the films of Stanley KubrickKeywords & terms: music, soundtrack, score, film, movie*, cinema, Kubrick Also: include the titles of films in your search? “incidental music”, “background music”Use Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT), truncation etc. to create appropriate search strings and apply the search (or variations of the search) to all relevant resources Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
  • Getting Started 2.• Initial reviews: identify broad problem area, potential research problem, theoretical background, relevant terminology (keywords and terms)• Once approved, further searches to refine research problem and methodologies ‘Trawling’ and ‘Mining’• There may be a number of strands to your lit search• Keep a record of all of resources searched, and the search terms and strings that you applied• Keeps a record of all books/articles that you are likely to need for your bibliography e.g. Endnote, Zotero Ronan Madden Info Lit 2012/13
