While the resources on this guide should be adequate for most student work at USC-Upstate, you may occasionally need to consult one of the major subject periodical indexes for music. The International Index to Music Periodicals (selective coverage back to 1874), Music Index (print from 1949, online from 1976) and RILM Abstracts (1967-present) are available for library use in Mickel Library at Converse College in Spartanburg, the Music Library at USC-Columbia, and the Music Library at Furman University in Greenville.
