Tutt Library Research Guides
If you want to find works by a composer, do an AUTHOR search in the Tiger catalog. This will bring up anything she has created (scores, recordings, writings, etc).
If you want to find out about a composer, do a SUBJECT search.
IMPORTANT!! You must use the convention of Last Name, First Name when using these 2 searches!
Many living composers have websites with sound files and biographical information.
Use Advanced Search in Tiger and the most specific information that you have, such as key, opus number, or thematic index number of a piece, for example:
Mozart K. 622
Useful Subject Searches:
You can use Prospector to order materials that are either checked out or not owned by the campus libraries.
To widen your search, use WorldCat to locate scores that we don't own. You can order these through interlibrary loan.
We do have a few scores of Brazilian music. Your best bet is to perform a WORD search, Brazil* Music* (see Truncation, below) and then modify your search to select SCORES.
You can also search TIGER for composers and performers. See Looking for a composer? in the box to the left for some search hints.
