Resource Spotlight: Oxford Music Online
In the tutorial above, viewers are guided in accessing and using Oxford Music Online.
Oxford Music Online offers users the ability to access and cross-search the vast resources of Oxford's music reference in one location.

Oxford Music Online also features the Encyclopedia of Popular Music, a comprehensive reference work devoted exclusively to popular music.
Search and browse capabilities allow users to refine their results by source, and specific era or subject category. Users can also choose to view biographies, subject entries, or images when searching or browsing.
