After my perusal of the internet, I found some helpful resources for research at the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Bruin Publishing.
(Songwriter's Hall of Fame: http://www.songwritershalloffame.org/exhibits/era )
(Bruin Publishing: http://www.bruinpublishing.com/about/ )
These two websites will aid my ethnographic study because they include information regarding songwriters and the exploitation of their works. From that information, I will be able to obtain more leads that relate to the songwriting process and Belmont songwriters.
