Finding Recordings in the Library Catalog

The Music Library has many CDs available that can be found by searching the library catalog. Once you find the CD you are looking for, write down the call number and ask for it at the Music Library service desk.

Searching the Library Catalog

  • Select the "Author" tab and search by composer (example: Bach, Johann Sebastien)
  • Click on the "Limit / Sort" button and select "Music Recording" from the Format dropdown menu
  • Use the other limiters to narrow your search (example: select "Words in the TITLE" from the dropdown and enter "suite" to find sound recordings of only J.S. Bach's Suites"
  • Note the call number and location

Using Quick Search

  • Try a keyword search for the composer's last name and type of composition (example: enter "Bach" and "Suites")
  • Use the limiters to the left to narrow the format to "Audio Recording"
  • Note the call number and location
