Finding a Recording of a Particular Piece

You can also use the catalog to find a recording of a particular piece. Suppose you are looking for a recording of the Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115. One of the best ways to find a piece of music is to use the opus number as one of your search terms. Go to the Libraries' home page at http://www.lib.ua.edu. Under Resources, click on Classic Catalog; then click on Advanced Search. In the first box, type "brahms, johannes," and choose "as a phrase" and "author" from the right-hand drop-down box. In the second box, type "op. 115" and leave it as a Keyword. In the third box, type "compact" if you want a compact disc, "sound" if you want to see all recordings the library has, including online recordings and LPs.  In the "type" option, select "Musical Recording."
