Selected Information Resources and Services for:
FTS 100: Power of Music
This guide will introduce you to some resources that may be useful for your research. It's hard to anticipate the various directions research might lead, so bear in mind that it may be better to use the Library's general Program Guides for an appropriate discipline. For example, Health & Exercise Science, Nursing, or Psychology. Feel free to contact me, Dan Mollner at email@example.com, or any Reference Librarian for assistance.
