Welcome to the online guide for MU 102 Library Instruction.
My name is Brooke Duffy and I'm a reference & instruction librarian here at Fairfield. I've selected the resources listed in the pages of this guide to help you conduct research for your final paper. Feel free to use this guide until the end of your course.
Getting Started Using this Guide:
Step 1: Visit Assignment Info for help developing your research topic
Step 2: Use the worksheet handed out in class (or linked below) to develop keywords from your research topic that you can search in databases and the library catalog with.
Step 3: Gather some background information on a musician or genre. This is a crucial step that will help you get a sense of the broader importance or significant events related to the music.
Step 4: Visit Finding Books or Finding Articles to find evidence to support your developing thesis.
Feel free to visit the library for help using the library's resources for your research!
If you need any further assistance, please don't hesitate to Ask A Librarian for help. To contact me directly, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
