Introduction to Music Therapy

Starting Broad

Subject Specific

You can search these databases if you find that a broader approach is not enough. Think about your topic and what perspective might be most helpful. Might an education lens be helpful if your population is children? Do we want to look at something more medical if your population is dealing with a physical health issue? Etc.

When and Where Can I Access Databases?

Databases are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can use them on or off campus. If you are using them from off campus you will be prompted to put in your SU username and password (the same one you use for Gull Net, MyClasses, or an SU computer).

Getting Full Text

Some databases will have the full text of the entire article available within the database, others will only have a citation for the article. When there is only a citation available, you will see a yellow find it button. This button will give you options for getting a full text version of the article. If we have access to it in another database it will be linked there.

If it says "Not Available Online" then look for "Check Availability in SU Catalog"; if you see that then we may have a hardcopy version on the shelf in the library.

If you don't have either of those options then you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)! There are loads of ways to get a copy of an article you are interested in.

Music Journals

In addition to searching in databases, you can also search pertinent journals directly.
