TRIAL: Encyclopedia of Popular Music

We have a trial of the Encyclopedia of Popular Music until 23rd February.

To access this trial go to http://www.oxfordmusiconline.com. Off-campus users should access this trial through the Windows Terminal Service (go to http://wts.liv.ac.uk/, login with your MWS username and password, click on the Web folder, click on the Internet Explorer icon, then point that browser to http://www.oxfordmusiconline.com). If we were to subcribe to this resource we would of course set up off-campus access via EZproxy as usual.

The Encyclopedia of Popular Music includes the following features:


  • 27,000 entries, with regular updates and new content
  • Extensive coverage of popular music of all genres including jazz, country, folk, rap, reggae, techno, musicals and world music
  • Thousands of entries covering genres, trends, styles, record labels, venues and music festivals
  • Key dates, biographies, and further reading are provided, along with complete discographies
  • Excellent search and browse functionality, printer-friendly format, and export citations
After trying the Encyclopedia of Popular Music, please leave a comment.
