Find Music in the Online Catalog: Find Scores

Guide to finding scores and recordings in BGSU's online catalog

Locations for Music Materials

In the online catalog, you will find a number of different locations for music materials.  Click on the "Map It" icon to see where these materials will be.


Finding Scores in the Online Catalog

Searching for scores in BGSU Libraries Catalog is relatively easy once you are familiar with strategies that allow you to streamline your searches. Using the web-based catalog, you have two options for searching. The first begins with an AUTHOR or TITLE search and uses the catalog's limit feature; the second uses a WORD search and allows you to enter all of your terms and conditions in a single step.

Locating scores with distinctive titles is slightly different than searching for those with a musical form as the title (symphonies, sonatas, etc.). An example of both types of searches, with both the AUTHOR or TITLE and WORD options are provided.

Click the arrow next to "Finding Scores" on the tab above to link to sections describing the above two searches.


Circulation of Scores

Like books, scores may be checked out at the main circulation desk on the first floor. M2s, M3s, and M3.1s are available for use by any patron in the library; graduate students and faculty may borrow them for fourteen days.

See our Circulation Policy for a detailed listing of what materials circulate to different user groups.
