Music Research from Home using NYPL resources: Music Specific Databases

A guide for doing research in music while the NYPL branches are closed.

Access to text & image based resources

The entire list of more than 800 databases can be browsed here https://www.nypl.org/collections/articles-databases 

  • Some are available only from within an NYPL branch - you'll see this next to them 
  • Some are available from home with your NYPL login - you'll see this next to them 
  • Some are open Internet resources that anyone can access - you'll see this next to them 

Please Note: during this period, we have arranged for remote access to many databases that are ordinarily only available within the Library's branches. Not all of those that are now available remotely have had their icon changed, so if there is a resource you'd like access to, it's worth trying.
