Scout is a powerful search tool that can be used to find both print and electronic resources. Scout simultaneously searches the libraries' catalog, databases, electronic collections, streaming media, and much more.
More Search Tips
Use full names for composers with common surnames
Use standard English-language spellings (e.g., "Rachmaninoff" instead of "Rachmaninov")
Avoid abbreviating names (e.g., J. S. Bach)
Searching for Vocal Music:
To specify vocal range in your search, indicate high, medium, or low voice
You can add vocal range to some subject headings, like "Songs (High voice)" OR you can simply search "high voice" as a keyword
Avoid using keys in your search terms (such as "C" or "G minor")
Finding recordings by format:
For CDs, add a keyword search for "compact" or "CD"
For LPs, add a keyword search for "LP"
For streaming media, add a keyword search for "electronic"
