Are you writing a paper?
Every month some student writes to me, asking me for information
on lutes, music, and everything else. I tell them
to go to the music library and look up lute in the
New Grove Dictionary of Music & Musicians for a start.
Then they can check out A tutor for the renaissance lute
by Diana Poulton, which the interlibrary loan librarian can
find for them. You can too!
Librarians are there to help you with your research, but you
have to go to the library to find them. It is good to get
away from the computer screen for a while, too!
