    Abstract:
    I taught a graduate “Bibliography of Music” course from 1987 to 2021. Although the world of information experienced a revolution, I continued to teach the same basic topics which included: bibliographical citation, catalogs, indexes and databases, encyclopedias and dictionaries, bibliographies, thematic catalogs, collected editions, popular and world music, and copyright. I revised the course substantially over the years, even adopting a flipped method of instruction after 2015, which greatly increased the transparency and communication with my students. I learned how they conceived of information and undertook research. Starting in 2019, I gave my students a pre-test (survey) to assess their knowledge of the traditional topics of music bibliography and discovered that only about one-third of the students were familiar with these topics. The traditional topics are still relevant but need to be taught earlier in their degree programs and from a digital perspective. It is also important to use the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education when teaching music bibliography in our time.
