Decades in Music
Go to the library catalog and look at the "Resource List" titled "Decades Music". This is a list of over 40 titles in our library that will help for this project. Look at the call number to find them on the shelf. If you need help with this see Mrs. Olson or Mrs. Kissane. You are welcome to check out the books you need.
ABC-CLIO is a great database for this project. Use the "American History" section to search for your music type, a specific performer, or an event in our history. There are articles on Woodstock, Elvis, Rock and Roll, and much more! Remember to have your password if you are using this from home.
