MUS 284--Popular Music and Digital Culture (Summer 2020): Finding Books

Why Use Books

Why use books?

Books can be a treasure chest of information that may not be available in any other resource, especially when looking at the historical treatment of a topic. Most SCHOLARLY books also provide extensive bibliographies, directing you to other books, articles, and various other types of sources that can be very useful to your research.
