If you're trying to choose a research topic, or find materials, here are some search terms you may find useful. Use these in PITTCat Classic by typing "subject:" into the search bar, followed by the term. For example, "subject:Jazz--History" will search for all books with that subject.
Here's another list of books that you may find useful. Click on the title of each book to access PITTCat and find out whether the book is currently available. There are many more books about jazz in the library, but these books may give you an idea where to start your research.
