Have you tried to use Grove Music Online since it was redesigned earlier this year? This important resource, offered by the Portland State Library, contains improved search capabilities and provides the entire texts of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, The New Grove Dictionary of Opera, and The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, as well as all subsequent updates.
Grove Music Online now includes two of Oxford's outstanding single volume reference works on music: The Oxford Companion to Music and The Oxford Dictionary of Music, Second Edition Revised. As an added bonus, the new site features improved and expanded links to sound examples via partnerships with Classical Music Library and DRAM as well as links to the RILM database of music bibliography. These are just the highlights of the new tools and resources, including timelines and topical guides, that you will find at Grove Music Online.
