Guiding users through the wealth of content available on Bloomsbury Popular Music, our exclusive and specially-commissioned research and learning tools are designed with teachers, students, and researchers in mind.


Our goal is to provide solutions to support digital learning, teaching, and research across a variety of disciplines. Subject Guides provide instructors, students, and librarians with a simple shortcut to help them find the material they need across a number of topics. Links can easily be added to a course syllabus or reading list. Explore these gateways for discovery and deepen the research experience with our resources.
