As if April 1st, 2010, WKU Libraries has access to the Music Index Online:

Published since 1949, The Music Index is the single most comprehensive annual Subject-Author Guide to Music Periodical Literature.

The editor-librarians at Harmonie Park Press have surveyed data from more than 875 music periodicalsfrom over 40 countries.

Produced in conjunction with the PRINT format, The Music Index ONLINE edition features over 1.5 million records. The searchable database is updated quarterly with about 100,000 new records added annually. Open URL support is available and Full Text Article Links are accessible to JSTOR Participants. We are pleased to announce that in 2009 The Music Index Online coverage will span from 1973 to the present.

Topics concerned with every aspect of the classical and popular world of music are thoroughly categorized and organized according to the framework of an internal Subject List which includes both Subject and Geographic headings. Covering all styles and genres of music, The Music Index duly cites book reviews, obituaries, new periodicals, and news and articles about music, musicians, and the music industry.

The longevity and dedication of our editorial and production staff has ensured a publication of unfailing high-quality. The thoroughness of indexing and subject heading research, along with our comprehensive coverage of the music field, makes The Music Index an invaluable resource for both the novice scholar and the experienced academician.
