The American Music Resource (AMR) provides a multi-dimensional source of reference information about all styles of music indigenous to the Western Hemisphere. It is intended to serve efficiently and quickly: text-only. The collection houses over 800 bibliographies, lists and files, and is indexed below by topic (genre and style subdivisions) and subject (individuals - mostly composers). Some listings also include links to selected Internet resources, as does the netography.

This file contains information about primary bibliographical sources for American Music, a brief description of the American Music Resource and a few suggestions for music research.

Here is the portal to the AMR System itself. This experimental site is currently under development, and here's the 8/96 blurb.
