The Performing Arts Library created journal collection descriptors for users to quickly identify holdings of journal titles at Kent State University. The descriptors are thin DVD cases located next to the bound journals, and contain the journal title, print holdings, electronic access, and indexing information. A list of all journal titles is shelved with the current periodicals.
You may find a citation in a footnote or bibliography/references list that you would like to track down. Here's an example of music-related citation in a book:
Agawu, V. K. "Does Music Theory Need Musicology?," Current Musicology 53 (1993), pp. 89-98.
Citation Breakdown: "Agawu" is the author of the article. The phrase in "quotes" is the title of the article, and the italicized phrase that follows is the title of the journal. "53 (1993)" is the volume number and date showing when the journal published, followed by the location of the article within the journal.
