Transcript

  • 1.
  • 2. Searching for Music in Cardcat<br />
  • 3. Start with the Library’s home page:<br />http://www.bsu.edu/library/<br />
  • 4. Then click CardCat<br />
  • 5. Next, choose whether to log in<br />
  • 6. Logging in allows you to:<br />Access Course Reserves<br />Place Holds/Recalls<br />Renew library items<br />You do NOT have to log in just to search cardcat!<br />
  • 7. Searching for Sheet Music(Scores)<br />
  • 8. Searching for books is simple:<br />There are few variations amongst editions<br />
  • 9. Searching for music is different...<br />
  • 10. Searching for Music vs. Books<br />Books usually have one format:<br />BOOK!<br />
  • 11. Sheet Music Comes in Many Formats<br />And each format has its own keywords for searching<br />Score:<br />Miniature Score:<br />Set of Parts<br />
  • 12. Books are simple to describe. They usually have<br /><ul><li>One Author
  • 13. One Title
  • 14. Unique Contents
  • 15. One or Two Subjects</li></li></ul><li>Sheet music can have…<br />Two Titles!<br /><ul><li>Title Page Title
  • 16. Uniform Title</li></ul>Two “Authors!”<br /><ul><li>The composer
  • 17. The arranger or editor</li></ul>A special size<br />
  • 18. Let’s say you want the full score for Trauermusik by Paul Hindemith...<br />
  • 19. You can type the title into the Basic Search textbox as a keyword:<br />trauermusik<br />
  • 20. Your query returns 15 results...<br />What????<br />but…<br />
  • 21. Some of the results are “false hits”<br />
  • 22. If you want “Trauermusik” by Hindemith, this isn’t it!<br />The uniform title for Mozart’s Mass in C<br />happens to use the term “Trauermusik!”<br />
  • 23. Title of the piece: Trauermusik<br />Composer: Hindemith<br />Solo instrument: Viola<br />Arrangement with Piano? No!<br />For more targeted results, use more search terms:<br />
  • 24. Combine terms with Boolean commands such as “and” and “not” <br />
  • 25. Now there are fewer results:<br />
  • 26. ...and the results are more specific!<br />This one is the score<br />
  • 27. Clicking on “Details” shows you the full cataloging record:<br />
  • 28. Searching for Music Recordings(Compact Discs)<br />
  • 29. Recordings are complicated!<br />There are lots of possible “authors”<br /><ul><li>Composer
  • 30. Librettist
  • 31. Conductor
  • 32. Orchestra
  • 33. Chorus
  • 34. Soloist
  • 35. Accompanist
  • 36. Author of Liner notes</li></li></ul><li>There can be up to 20 tracks on a disc and some CDs are published as multi-disc sets:<br />This CD has over 70 “authors!”<br />
  • 37. There can be up to 20 tracks on a disc and some CDs are published as multi-disc sets:<br />This CD has over 70 “authors!”<br />
  • 38. …and recordings can have<br />Lots of titles!<br />The title on the cover<br />The titles of all the pieces<br />Alternate titles &amp; translations<br />Titles of sections or movements<br />Series titles<br />Uniform title! (of course!)<br />
  • 39. …and<br />Lots of publication information:<br />Recording label (the “publisher”)<br />Label number<br />Recording date<br />Release date<br />Reissue date(s)<br />Reissue number(s)<br />Timings<br />
  • 40. Tips for searching for CDs:<br />Combine search terms using Boolean commands<br />Use “compact” as a keyword<br />Titles are searchable from “Contents” or Added Author areas as title or keywords<br />Use “Find on page” to verify the piece is on the disc (Ctrl + F, or Edit Find)<br />
  • 41. A typical aria CD (part 1):<br />The performer is the “author.”<br />There are many titles that may also appear on other CDs<br />There could be many recording dates<br />
  • 42. Part 2: Added Author-Title for each aria<br />
  • 43. Added Author-Title lines are searchable:<br />Author Title of the Opera Title of the Aria<br />
  • 44. None of these seems to “match”<br />But our CD comes up in the list of CDs with this aria<br />
  • 45. Let’s say you want to listen to Hindemith’s Trauermusik<br />The piece only runs about eight minutes <br />...so it won’t take up a whole Compact disk<br />The title could found be in two places in the cataloging record other than “title” or “uniform title”<br />Contents (track listing)<br />Added Author-Title lines<br />
  • 46. For this recording, the uniform title is “Orchestra Music. Selections” and the title says “Viola Concertos”<br />
  • 47. Sample searches:<br />trauermusik and hindemith and compact<br />Trauermusik and viola and compact<br />
  • 48. The results are what you want but “Trauermusik” is not in the titles:<br />Click on “Details” to verify the piece is on the CD<br />
  • 49. Use “Find” on page to see the title:<br />
  • 50. Things get trickier for works with genre-based titles, for example:<br />
  • 51. A genre-based piece may be titled many ways, for example:<br />By nickname<br />By number within the genre<br />By opus number<br />By key<br />In another language<br />In a group<br />In an unrelated title!<br />“Eroica” Symphony<br />Symphony No. 3<br />Symphony Op. 55<br />Symphony in E-Flat Major<br />Symphonie Nr. 3 in Es-Dur<br />The Symphonies<br />The World’s Greatest Orchestral Music<br />
  • 52. The uniform title standardizes genre-based titles<br />Elements of a uniform title:<br /> Genre (plural)<br /> Numbering system<br /> Key<br />
  • 53. A note about numbering systems<br />Composers’ works can be numbered many ways!<br />By the number in the genre<br />By opus number <br />By opus with internal number<br />By index (Verzeichnis) number<br />By scholar’s number<br />String Quartet No. 6<br />String Quartet Op. 18<br />String Quartet Op. 18, No. 1<br />BWV 1006<br />K. 465<br />The uniform title uses only one system per composer.<br />Publishers don’t pay attention to uniform titles!<br />
  • 54. Some numbering systems to know:<br />Bach<br />Beethoven<br />Haydn<br />Mozart<br />Schubert<br />Vivaldi<br />Bach WerkeVerzeichnis (BWV)<br />Opus numbers; Woo (Werkeohne opus, works without opus number)<br />Hoboken (H.)<br />Köchel (K.)<br />Deutsch (D.)<br />Shhhh don’t ask about Vivaldi<br />ACK! You had to ask about VIVALDI!<br />
  • 55. Vivaldi’s works have been numbered several ways:<br />RV is the current standard <br />system, but...<br />Sometimes opus numbers are used:<br />La stravaganza : 12 violin concertos, opus 4<br />Sometimes titles are used:<br />Cimento dell&amp;apos;armonia e dell&amp;apos;inventione. N. 1-4<br />
  • 56. You can use numbers as “keywords”<br />This gets around the problem of uniform titles, symphony nicknames, etc.<br />
  • 57. Notice how different the “titles” are!<br />
  • 58. The uniform title gave you the results:<br />
  • 59. Using Advanced Search<br />
  • 60. In Advanced Search you can specify where in the library record your term should appear: <br />
  • 61. You can also specify:<br />Language<br />Format<br />Date<br />
  • 62. Let’s say you want to hear<br />DaDaTovarich!<br />Russian Soprano Anna Netrebko<br />...singing in Russian<br />...for a whole opera<br />...not just on a CD of excerpts<br />You can do that!<br />
  • 63. You can create a very specific search:<br />Opera<br />Not<br />excerpts<br />Netrebko<br />Russian<br />CD<br />
  • 64. Your results are exactly what you want!<br />
  • 65. You can specify several authors:<br />
  • 66. ...for a specific performance<br />
  • 67. One more note about numbers...<br />In CardCat, recording times are searchable, so for numbers <br />59 and lower, use ADJ to form a phrase:<br />
  • 68. Remember, you can always ask for help!<br />
  • 69. Music Collection Staff are happy to help!<br />Amy Edmonds<br />Music Librarian<br />BSUMusicLibn on AIM<br />aledmonds@bsu.edu<br />Jason Smith<br />Music Collection Coordinator<br />(7 a.m. – 4 p.m.)<br />Kevin Blue<br />Music Collection Nighttime Supervisor <br />(6 p.m. – 3 a.m.)<br />
