This database provides access to about 50,000 songs
in more than 1,500 published song anthologies owned by the
George F. DeVine Music Library at the University of
Tennessee, located in Knoxville. Use this citation index to determine which anthologies contain the
song(s) you need. You will not find the music or the words
here, just the call number and book title. If you are not in Knoxville, ask your librarian about interlibrary loan options
to obtain the songs you need be.
Start your search as simply as possible. For example, enter the last name of the composer and one key word from the song title. However, more than one keyword and any number of fields can be used.
DO NOT use initial articles such as: the/of/a/an (use 'Sound of Music' rather than 'The Sound of Music').
DO NOT use dashes or punctuation, besides apostrophes.
Truncation is automatic ('Tchai' will yield 'Tchaikovsky').
RESULTS: Click on the links to find all songs in an anthology, other songs by the same composer or author, or other songs/arrangements with the same words in their title. Change and redo your search if necessary.
