When you click on a database link on campus, you will go directly to the database. When you click from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in. The login screen for our library looks something like this. (NOTE: this is just an illustration)
Databases frequently provide full-text for many articles but in some cases the full text is not available.
In order to get an article that is not available online in full text you can request the article by submitting an Interlibrary Loan Article Request Form. A link to the form is frequently included beneath the citation in the list of article results. A link to the form can also be found on the library website under Quick Links.
These are the best databases to try for music research:
Performance Database from APGRD (Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama)
Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, University of Oxford
An external online resource provided by the University of Oxford. For best results, simply select your title from the ANCIENT WORKS list then execute the search.
IBDB: Internet Broadway Database
The official database for Broadway theatre information. Provides records of productions from the beginnings of New York theatre until today.
IMDb: Internet Movie Database
Self-described as the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. A searchable database of more than 100 million data items, including more than 2 million movies, TV, and entertainment programs and more than 4 million cast and crew members.
These are just a few of the electronic journals available through the AU Library.
Use the databases to find articles in these and other journals.
Note: The Library databases' full-text coverage of Stage Directions goes back farther than the website's own archives.
