Thread Name: Finally! An online index to my songbooks
Subject: Finally! An index to my songbooks
I've been getting sick and tired of pulling down five songbooks off the shelf every time I want to find a song. So, tonight I got motivated and started a database index of all my songbooks. I got halfway through the index of Lomax's "Folk Songs of North America," and I got tired. I decided to see if there might be an online list of the songs in this book. Well, I found something better than that. Here's the welcoming blurb:
Welcome to the UTK Song Index (click here). This is a publicly available database providing access to citations for about 50,000 songs in more than 1,400 published song anthologies owned by the George F. DeVine Music Library at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Well, I guess designing my database was good practice....
