Virtuously Virtual. Diligently Digital


The Whittaker Library is stuffed with good things, but don't forget that we have a lot of digital resources too.

Essay or project coming up? The task could be a whole lot easier if you use some of our specialised databases.  Here are just three.  The first two help you find what's out there, by giving you an abstract or brief summary and full bibliographic details of the articles etc.  And JSTOR not only tells you what's available on the database - it gives you full text, too.

  • International Bibliography of Theatre and Dance (click here) e.g., you could search on Ballets Russes
  • RILM music abstracts (click here)
  • JSTOR (click here) - digitised, searchable back copies of music journals
2 things to remember:-
  1. Shibboleth - the institutional login for using these resources outside the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's premises.  (Your login confirms you're a student or staff member here.)
  2. We have lots more digital resources available via our Library A-Z of electronic resources page.
Your subject librarians are happy to assist you with electronic resources, if you need further help.
