Online catalog record l.jpg

Online Catalog Record

  • Here is one of the resulting books:

  • One of the few in which the title is exactly what was entered


Library catalog 3 l.jpg

Library Catalog -3

  • How does the online catalog know where to “look” for “Rossini”?

  • How does the search engine know to display ONLY titles with “rossini” and NOT authors or subject headings with “rossini”?


Marc record l.jpg

MARC RECORD:

100=author

245=title

260= publisher

Where does this page come from?


Slide7 l.jpg

OCLC

OCLC = Online Computer Library Center

Originally OCLC = Ohio College Library Center

OCLC = WorldCat


Library call numbers l.jpg

LIBRARY CALL NUMBERS

WHAT DOES THE CALL NUMBER MEAN?


Classification l.jpg

CLASSIFICATION

  • “M” s are for MUSIC

    • M = Scores

    • ML = Books (Music Literature)

    • MT = Books (Music Theory and Instruction)

  • Library of Congress Call Numbers


M3s or complete works l.jpg

M3s or COMPLETE WORKS

Why aren’t they consistent?

  • M3 .B1133 (Bach)

  • M3 .B3 (Barbireau)

  • Why do the catalog records look different?

    • Usually it is COMPOSER OUTPUT


  • More on call numbers l.jpg

    More on Call numbers

    Why are they important?

    *The call number isn’t random, it represents the item

    • M200 = 2 players

    • M300 = 3 players

    • M1500 / M1503

    • M2000 / M2003

    • ML410 / ML416-20


    Searching for music l.jpg

    SEARCHING FOR MUSIC


    Why is searching for music different than searching for books l.jpg

    Why is searching for music different than searching for books?

    • What is the difference between searching for Twain’s Tom Sawyer and Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony?

    • Symphony has a variety of title possibilities

    • The Symphony title could be in any language

    • In music, same title used by many composers (“generic titles” like “Sonata”)


    Question l.jpg

    QUESTION:

    • How does the online catalog HANDLE all the titles that are like these (below) in the online catalog? (by various composers, in various languages, etc.)

    • Symphony in G

    • Sonata #2

    • String Quartet, op.2

    • Etude (etc.)


    Answer l.jpg

    By ADDING another title (called a Uniform Title)that is “uniform” for all examples of the same work.

    ANSWER:


    Uniform title l.jpg

    UNIFORM TITLE???

    WHAT the

    *$^%#?&

    IS

    THAT?


    Here is an example l.jpg

    HERE IS AN EXAMPLE.

    • Dvorak’s New World Symphony may have any one of these as its title (all in English):

      • Symphony op. 95

      • Symphony in E minor

      • London Symphony

      • Symphony, no.9

      • New World Symphony


    More examples l.jpg

    MORE examples :

    • These are NOT in English:

      • Symphonie Nr. 9, e-moll

      • Aus derNeuen Welt

      • Symphony no. 5 [i.e. 9] in E minor : op. 95 (From the New World)

      • Du nouveau monde


    Example cont l.jpg

    …EXAMPLE (cont.):

    • The music for of these examples is THE SAME.

    • The title on the score or CD is DIFFERENT for each


    Example cont20 l.jpg

    EXAMPLE (cont.)

    • SO…in the online catalog, each piece has an ADDED TITLE that is the SAME (“Uniform”) for each so the user knows that all of these:

      • Symphony #104, by Dvorak

      • Symphony in D, by Dvorak

      • London Symphony, by Dvorak

      • Symphony, no.4, by Dvorak

      • New World Symphony by Dvorak

        ARE THE SAME MUSIC.


    Dvorak s new world symphony l.jpg

    Dvorak’s New World Symphony

    Uniform title is:

    Symphonies, no. 9, op. 9, E minor

    (Why is it plural?)


    You may ask l.jpg

    YOU MAY ASK…

    BUT HOW DOES THE UNIFORM TITLE HELP ME?

    OR

    WHO CARES?


    Try it yourself l.jpg

    TRY IT YOURSELF

    • Search for music that has a GENRE title (sonata, mass, symphony) as opposed to a distinctive title (like Aida or Vier ernste Gesange)

    • Look at the record and find the uniform title

    • Search again using the uniform title information


    Using the uniform title l.jpg

    USING the Uniform title

    Find ONE EXAMPLE in the online catalog for Dvorak’s New World Symphony. Note the uniform title:

    Personal author: Dvorak, Antonin, 1841-1904.Uniform title: Symphonies, no. 9, op. 9, E minor

    Title: New World Symphony


    Using the u t for searching cont l.jpg

    Using the U.T. for searching (cont.)

    Now search:

    op 9 no 9

    dvorak

    with

    and see...


    Results of k dvorak and op 9 no 9 l.jpg

    Results of k=dvorak and op 9 no 9


    Why don t all catalog records have uniform titles l.jpg

    Why don’t ALL catalog records have uniform titles?

    • Search author = badingshenk

    • Look at #6, then #7

      BECAUSE:

    • #6 has a “distinctive title,” no need for uniform title

    • #7 has a “generic title,” so it has a uniform title


    But who cares about a u t l.jpg

    BUT WHO CARES about a U.T.?

    • THE PERSON WHO WANTS TO FIND ALL POSSIBLE “HITS” FOR A SEARCH or IF FINDING ONE EXAMPLE OF SOMETHING IS DIFFICULTE


    Why use the uniformt title l.jpg

    Why use the Uniformt title?

    • Usually for printed or recorded music, not print items.

      • Once you know what elements are included in a uniform title, you can find other examples of that work more easily

      • Find ONE example, look at the U.T., then search again.


    Here is the routine l.jpg

    HERE IS THE ROUTINE:

    • FIND ONE EXAMPLE

    • LOOK at the UNIFORM TITLE

    • USE THAT information to search again


    Practice the routine l.jpg

    PRACTICE THE ROUTINE

    • …by looking at the catalog screen you found earlier, FIND that example, LOOK at the Uniform title, SEARCH AGAIN using facts from the uniform title

      • Find one example

      • Look at the uniform title

      • Search again


    Try this l.jpg

    TRY THIS:

    • Do a Simple Search for “Drum Roll Symphony”

    • Do not add a material designation

    • Look at one that “answers” your search question

    • Using the information on this bibliographic record, search again.


    And now l.jpg

    and NOW…

    • Limit your search so you find only the SCORES for this

      • Go to the bottom of the search screen

      • Set MATERIAL TYPE to Musical Scores


    Subject headings l.jpg

    SUBJECT HEADINGS

    In the online catalog


    Subject headings35 l.jpg

    SUBJECT HEADINGS

    • Subject heading is related to call number, for example,

      • Symphonies = M1001

      • Violin music = M40- M44

      • Copland, Aaron = ML410.C756


    Subject headings 2 l.jpg

    Subject headings-2

    What does that mean?

    I don’t know!

    “Subject

    headings must be entered in an “authorized” form”


    Authorized subject heading l.jpg

    Authorized subject heading

    Do this search: SUBJECT:canines

    You get 0 hits WHY?

    Because the AUTHORIZED subject heading is “DOGS” not “CANINES”


    If i don t know this how do i find what i need l.jpg

    IF I DON’T KNOW THIS, HOW DO I FIND WHAT I NEED?

    • Do a “TITLE” search for “CANINE”

    • Look at the subject heading

    • Do a BROWSE- SUBJECT SEARCH USING “DOGS”

      • Nearly 300 “hits”


    Using subject headings l.jpg

    Using SUBJECT HEADINGS

    • TO REVIEW:

      • Find one example

      • Look at the subject heading

      • Search again using that heading


    Sound familiar l.jpg

    Sound familiar?

    • It is the ADVICE as was given for searching using Uniform Titles:

      • Search using WHATEVER YOU KNOW

      • Look at the Heading (Uniform title OR subject heading)

      • SEARCH AGAIN using information from the heading you saw


    Now it is your turn l.jpg

    NOW IT IS YOUR TURN

    • TRY IT with “vocal pedagogy”

    • What is the proper Subject Heading?


    Three types of subject headings l.jpg

    Three TYPES of subject headings

    • Form

    • Topical

    • Names


    Form subject headings l.jpg

    “Form” subject headings

    • Form (not “about” anything)

      • Symphonies

      • Dictionaries

      • Songs – English

    • Always plural

    • Note SUBDIVISIONS


    Topical subject headings l.jpg

    “Topical” subject headings

    • Answers the question, “What is this item about?”

      • musical instruments -- China

      • musicology

      • african americans

    • Note subdivisions


    Name subject headings l.jpg

    “Name” Subject Headings

    • When an item is about a person

    • Used for biographical works

    • Added for the author of text set to music

      • Browning, Elizabeth Barrett, 1806-1861—Musical settings.


    How does one determine the correct subject heading l.jpg

    Trial and error is one way

    Try this and that until you get what you want

    OFTEN it works!

    How does one Determine the correct subject heading?


    Determining subject headings l.jpg

    (determining subject headings)

    • At the very CONTROLLED extreme we have . .

    • LCSH (a five-volume set of all the subject headings)

    • Find a copy and LOOK IT UP! (Middleton Ref Desk


    Subject headings48 l.jpg

    Subject headings

    • The “middle of the road respond is to use the 3-step method:

    1.Find one example using keyword searching

    2.Look at the subject heading

    3. Search again using that heading


    Keyword searching l.jpg

    KEYWORD SEARCHING

    • Doing a Keyword Search:

      • Use ANY search box

      • Click on “Keyword” in the left box

      • REMEMBER: The catalog can’t correct your spelling

        • Won’t find hits for “saxaphone”

      • Can’t read your mind or “truncate”

        • Can’t find “dog” in “dogs” with “keyword”


    Browse searching l.jpg

    BROWSE searching

    • On the Advanced Search page, click “Browse” in the box on the right side

    • This allows a left-to-right search

      • EXAMPLE:

        • Search in AUTHOR: Whites

        • This will retrieve the following:

          • Whites, Whitesboro, Whitesell, etc.


    Boolean searching l.jpg

    BOOLEAN SEARCHING

    BOOLEAN TECHNIQUES

    • Truncation

    • Operators

    • Nesting


    Truncation l.jpg

    TRUNCATION?

    • TO TRUNCATE = To shorten by or as if by cutting off

    • When you search using truncation, you CUT OFF some of the letters of a word.

    • Why would you do that?

      • TO GET MORE “HITS”


    Truncation use or l.jpg

    Truncation – use ? Or $

    • Use “?” to substitute for any letter

    • SEE MUSIC RESOURCES HOMEPAGE for tutorials

    • When searching “sonat?” you get “SONAT + one letter or zero letters

      • Sonata, sonat, sonate, etc.)

      • (single character or 0 character substitution)


    Truncation cont l.jpg

    Truncation (cont)

    • Use $ to substitute for multiple letters

    • When searching “sonat$” you would get “SONAT” + one or MORE letters:

      • Sonata, sonatas, sonatina, sonatinas, sonaten, sonate…

      • (multiple character substitution)


    Truncation55 l.jpg

    Truncation

    • NOTE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEARCHING these two terms:

      • Sonat?

      • Sonat$


    Keyword operators l.jpg

    Keyword Operators

    • Which is MORE inclusive, “AND” or “OR”?

    • Which would get more “hits”

      • boys AND girls

      • boys or girls?


    And the winner is l.jpg

    And the winner is…

    • boys OR girls


    A diagram of search results l.jpg

    A Diagram of search results

    • k=boys and girls

      • The result is GREEN (orplaid)

    • k=boys or girls

      • Results are blue, green&yellow(stripe and plaid)

    • k=boys not girls

      • Results are blue & green (vertical stripes & plaid)


    Nesting l.jpg

    Nesting

    • The Online catalog allows search expressions to be grouped or nested using parentheses.

    • It searches the expression located in the innermost set of parentheses first, and then continues the search, moving outward to the terms at the edges of the expression.


    Nesting60 l.jpg

    Nesting

    AN EXAMPLE SEARCH:

    • (child or children) and ((toy or toys) or entertainment)


    Nesting61 l.jpg

    NESTING

    • First Step, the innermost set of parentheses

      (child or children) and ( (toy or toys) or entertainment)

      • toy or toys (2240 hits)

      • entertainment(2778 hits)


    Second step l.jpg

    Second step

    • Now the Catalog combines the nested search with “entertainment”:

      • ((toy or toys) or entertainment)


    Nesting third step l.jpg

    Nesting –third step

    • Now the Catalog searched (child or children)

      • CHILD or CHILDREN = 135677 hits

    • Lastly, the Catalog combines these search “pieces”:

      (child or children) and((toy or toys) or entertainment) and the result is….


    Finally l.jpg

    FINALLY…

    (child or children) and ((toy or toys) or (entertainment))

    RESULT IS:

    1476 hits
