Locate Lists of Composers/Artists/Works on Websites

Google searches are great to find various lists of musicians from diverse backgrounds. Search for keywords such as "black composers," "female composers of color," "LGBT songwriters," "transgender musicians," or develop your own search terms. 

Once you locate names of specific musicians, search Google, YouTube, and the library catalog for each musician's name to find scores and recordings.
