Grove Music Online has been the leading online resource for music research since its inception in 2001, a glorious compendium of music scholarship offering the full texts of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, 2nd edition (2001), The New Grove Dictionary of Opera (1992), and The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, 2nd edition (2002), as well as numerous subsequent updates and emendations. Including more than 50,000 signed articles and 30,000 biographies contributed by over 6,000 scholars from around the world, Grove Music Online is the authority on all aspects of music.
Subscriptions to Grove Music Online also include access to The Oxford Companion to Music (2002) and The Oxford Dictionary of Music, 2nd edition (revised 2006), which supplement Grove's more extensive coverage with content geared toward undergraduates and general users. Many articles feature Sibelius-enabled musical examples to illustrate particular concepts and styles, and the tools and resources page offers specific pathways into the content including timelines and topical guides. Biographical articles in Grove Music Online are also linked to their counterparts in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography for mutual subscribers to both resources.
