... although I'm not sure who might read this post. How did you go about completing the Literature Review? What did you do when you read all the recommended books by your supervisors and still had a pathetic list of sources because your topic has not been written about since 1901? I know the most obvious thing is to bug my supervisors about this again, but I'd rather be more independent than that. Any recommendations? RILM, Grove Music Online, JAMS, JSTOR turn up nothing really useful. Bibliographic material in footnotes from the small amount of sources I have are merely tangential. Archives next? What about doing the literature review... how did you go about doing it and be most successful? What was your format?
