Catalog Searching Tips
Cataloged materials held by BGSU Libraries, including scores and recordings, may be located by searching the web-based version of the online catalog.
Music Library staff have prepared brief instructional guides for searching the web version of the catalog. Click on the tabs above to consult the guides. If you prefer using the text-based version of the catalog and need additional help, please ask a Music Library staff member for assistance.
Getting Started at the University Libraries
To borrow items from the libraries you need your BGSU photo ID and a current record in the library database. For more detailed information, see Borrowing, Renewing, and Requesting.
Library Login: BGSU Students, Faculty, and Staff need only their BGSU username and password to log in for remote access to the research databases, OhioLINK and local requesting, and My Library Account. The BGSU username and password is the same one used for logging in to MyBGSU, campus email, and BGSU lab and library computers. Look for more information on the relevant log-in screens.
If the University Libraries doesn't have what you need, chances are that OhioLINK does. OhioLINK is the 80+ academic (and some public) libraries that lend their resources to one another through an online requesting system. Look for the "Request this item" button in the OhioLINK catalog. For more detailed information, see OhioLINK requesting.
