MHST101: Resources for Library Project I (short videos)


This guide will teach you how to

1) search OBIS, Oberlin's online catalog, to locate music materials. Music can be tricky to search and is much more complicated than looking for a book. These videos will teach you the skills to search effectively

2) use Grove Music Online (also known as Oxford Music Online), the go-to one-stop music encyclopedia! Note that there is a print version of this directly behind the reference desk in the Conservatory Library.

Let's get started. The videos below in this guide will supplement the sections in the assignment. Start at the Conservatory Library website, where you will answer the questions listed in Library Project I on the class Blackboard page.
