The purpose of this research portal is to facilitate access by master’s and doctoral students to informational resources in the field of music teaching and learning, including pedagogy, philosophy, psychology, cognition, sociology, therapy, and wellness. It combines the features of a link library, a bibliography, a discussion board, a search engine, an electronic-resource database, and a news gatherer.
The selected music education resources included or referenced in the portal are drawn from:
- subscribed electronic database indexes, digitized libraries, and online journals
- public or open-access sites located on the Internet, such as research centers, conferences, organizations, catalogs of other libraries, and lists of links– “webliographies”– developed by others
- physical book, journal, and audio/video collections of GMU Libraries
Students and faculty who visit here are encouraged to participate in the portal’s interactive component with questions and comments, ratings/opinions on resources, suggestions for additional materials, and feedback on the portal’s “usability.” YOUR remarks and advice posted to other Mason scholars (under the DISCUSSION tab) will improve and add value to this portal.
