Music Education

A guide to various tools and resources for studying music education


Welcome to the LibGuide for Music Education. This guide is intended to familiarize you with the various resources available to you through Rowan University Libraries. If you need more in-depth help or guidance, feel free to schedule a research consultation.

The Performing Arts Collection can be found on the Second Floor of Campbell Library. Here, you will find all of the scores, CDs, and most of the reference books (encyclopedias, special music dictionaries, catalogs, and introductory research books), and some of the books on music education and performance.

The Fourth Floor of Campbell Library contains the majority of our books on music history, music performance, music education, the music industry, and music therapy. Check with a librarian or a library worker to see where your resources might be located.

This guide, the guides linked below, and many of the library databases provide access to lots of materials that you cannot find for free online.
