The library has an extensive collection of ebooks on a variety of topics. To find what is available, enter your subject in the library catalog followed by "ebooks." For example: "supply chain management" ebooks. Putting quotes around your topic area means the catalog will search on the phrase ("supply chain management") rather than each word separately.
Almost all of the library's ebooks are multi-user. This means that your whole class could access the book simultaneously and for free!

This comprehensive music bibliography features citations, abstracts and subject indexing. It provides broad yet detailed coverage, and facilitates both focused research and browsing for readers of all levels.
How does music, in particular harmony, actually work, presented as a real, scientific theory of music? In particular we derive from first principles of Physics and Computation the following three fundamental phenomena of music: the Major Scale, the Standard Chord Dictionary, and the difference in feeling between the Major and Minor Triads.
The main purpose of this book is to explain certain physical considerations useful not only to a beginner learning how to play a musical instrument, but also to an accomplished musician trying to gain full technical mastery of an instrument. Some conscious understanding of the facts of physics and physiology, while obviously not necessary, can speed up the learning process for a beginner and may help the good performer to acquire a level of technical skill, accuracy, and endurance unlikely ever to be attained otherwise.
