Search Tips

  • Need a score or recording?  Use Advanced Search options to limit your search to a format such as musical score, CD, or DVD. 
  • Use quotes to search an exact phrase - Ex: “music theater” searches that exact phrase. 
  • Add limiters to limit your search to a date or date range; to a scholarly, academic or peer reviewed article; to the type of publication. Remember that the more you add, the fewer results you will get.  
  • Use an asterisk to search different endings of a word; EX, "comput*" searches computer, computers, computing, etc.
  • Choose the catalog or the database's Advanced Search for more options and the ability to focus.
