Our March spotlight post is to introduce our music majors and researchers to our newest online resource, A-R Music Anthology (ARMA).
ARMA contains an extensive collection of music and articles supporting a broad range of courses dealing with music history and theory. Featuring over 600 pieces of music from antiquity through the twentieth century, you’ll find pages filled with textbook commentaries, music scores, articles, and more that will suit your academic or personal interests.
The interface is minimalistic in its design, while still offering a handful of tools to make the searching and browsing experience enjoyable. You can download PDFs of content for offline viewing or scroll through the content in their browser reader, with searching capabilities embedded into each document.
Instructors who plan to incorporate this database into their courses can make use of a personal Instructor Account, where you can make your own digital course packs tailored to course assignments and supplemental learning. Alongside customized course packs, other conveniently available resources include content guides, a glossary of terms and concepts, and you can annotate items to enhance your course materials!
If you are off-campus, you will need to make sure you are connected to the UNCC VPN to access the resource. Not sure about the VPN? You can find some links for setting up the VPN by visiting the Electronic Resources Subject Guide.
If you'd like to learn more about ARMA or other music resources that the library has to offer, you can contact our Research Data Librarian, Reese Manceaux, for direct assistance.
