By Prof. Michael Crowley, Music Librarian

We are happy to announce the recent activation of a new online ebook collection from Duke University Press: The Music and Sound Studies Collection.

“Containing over 150 titles, the Music and Sound Studies e-book collection pushes at the edges of how music is discussed. Its innovative ethnomusicology titles find new links between music and culture, and its groundbreaking sound studies titles establish a new framework for theorizing the larger context of how we listen.

The collection also includes essential works in jazz studies and popular music studies, biographies and memoirs of prominent musicians, and essay collections by important music critics. Addressing musical cultures from around the world, this interdisciplinary collection considers music and sound broadly, taking into account all their social, cultural, physiological, and technological dimensions.” [1]

To browse the full collection, log into the Duke University Press database which you’ll find listed under D on our Databases A-Z list. You will also find these titles indexed in our online catalog, OneSearch. Here is a selection of titles from the collection:
