Tips & Tricks
Find your music resources in the City Campus Library
Searching for song titles and short musical compositions? Songs & short compositions are often compiled in an anthology, cd or score. To search contents lists of scores & cds, keyword search the catalogue for the song /work title, and limit by material type e.g compact disc or music score.
Music is catalogued using the language it is written in. To search the catalogue for music, enter the word root followed by an asterix e.g. sonat* finds: sonata, sonate, sonaten, sonatina, sonatas... This is called truncation.
