Keyword & Subject Searching
WorldCat Local is the library's online catalog. Search it to find out what books, e-books, scores, videos, DVD's, CD's and more are available in our library's collection. You can start with a Keyword search on your topic.
It is especially helpful to know subject headings used for your topic so that you can do a Subject search. Always ask a librarian for help if you are not finding what you need. It may simply be a matter of figuring out the right terminology.
Here are a few examples of subject headings (used in WorldCat Local and many other databases as well):
- Bach, Johann Sebastian, 1685-1750
- Cantatas, Secular—Scores
- Compact discs
- Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Felix, 1809-1847
- Music—History and criticism
- Sound recordings
