Research Guides

Guide to BIPOC musicians and related literature

This guide supports research on the musical traditions and scholarship of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) individuals and groups.

Statement in Support of Anti-Racism

In support of anti-racism at the University of Toronto and in the larger Toronto community, the University of Toronto Music Library is committed to expanding its collection of literature and music by BIPOC musicians and scholars, and making its existing collections of BIPOC materials more visible to its patrons. 

This research guide is still under construction and a significant amount of new content will be added in the coming weeks. We are always looking to expand the guide and make it more inclusive. If you would like to offer suggestions of more items or resources, please contact Tim Neufeldt at If you know of a resource that the music library does not own, you can also suggest a purchase.
