The Source - Author Searching

Word searching isn't very efficient for finding generically-titled works by major composers (e.g. Mozart concerti). For these, author searching will yield the best results.

From The Source:

  • Select the AUTHOR option.
  • Type the composer's name.
  • Select the appropriate composer (hint: check the birth and death dates to ensure that you select the right composer).
  • Click on "Limit/Sort Search" and use the pull-down menus to limit your search, if appropriate.
    • MATERIAL TYPE lets you limit to scores (or recordings, or videos)
    • LOCATION lets you limit to the CD collection, and so forth.
    • Use Words in the TITLE to further limit you search by instrument or title (e.g. bassoon, concerto, etc.)
