PS The Guardian also has a separate music blog here.


Welcome to the blog for the Music and Performing Arts Library, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Here we'll share information about news and tools relevant to music, dance, and theatre researchers, as well as information about new items in the collection. We'll also post about news in the arts world that may be of interest to the Music and Performing Arts Library's users.
