How to Use the Online Catalog

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

Mozart Coronation concerto

"Concerto" is a type of composition, so in the catalog, every instance of this piece will have that special library generic title added to help us find it: genre, medium, number, key -- concertos, piano, orchestra, K. 537, D major

A keyword search using the most important of those elements will find almost every instance of this concerto in the Library:

  • composer - mozart
  • title - concertos, piano, 537 [maybe even just 537]
  • format - use drop downs or format words
