How to Use the Online Catalog

Basic instructions and tips for finding music materials in the online catalog

Using the Author Search

The Author Search is actually used to find any category of person or group of people:

  • Composers
  • Performers
  • Ensembles
  • Conferences
  • And even people who write words

Always search in reverse order (family name first)

The current catalog is not optimized (does not work well) for browsing large files, so we do not recommend searching for everything in the library by Bach or Beethoven and then looking page by page hoping to see that piece you need.
