Research guides are always a good place to go when beginning to dig deeper into a topic and are excellent starting points.
U of I's Robert E Brown Center for World Music
A Guide to the Guide
World music and ethnomusicology can be difficult to research. It covers a wide variety of topics and, unlike historical musicology, doesn't have a widely accepted central canon of well-known works. It can also involve difficulties of language, geography, and cultural differences. However, this guide should help you navigate the resources available in the library and if you need more help, please ask a librarian!
To help you more efficiently navigate within this LibGuide, here is an outline of the topics covered on each page:
-Area Culture Studies
-Blogs and Other Online Tools
-History and Theory
