> Title searching works well when searching for books and journals; however, 'Keyword' searching is recommended when looking for musical scores and recordings because it can be difficult to predict how a title will appear on a score or CD.
> If you know the composer and title, combine terms from both for your search. For example brahms "string quartets"
> If you want to find scores or parts, you can include terms in your keyword search to help narrow it down, like "vocal scores" or parts.
> If you specifically want a CD and not an LP, include digital in your keyword search. This elminates most, but not all, of the LPs.
