Music-related: catalogs, archives, and research guides


  • Discover - search books, articles, media, and more - all at the same time.
    •  This is the only place you can search for an article by its title.
    •  This is the only place you can search several streamed audio databases at once.
  • Catalog - search the online catalog for books, journals, and media but NOT articles. The Vassar College Libraries Online Catalog includes much of the Music Library Collection.
    •  Maximizes use of subject headings.
    •  Browse shelves by call number.
  • The Music Library Card Catalog  -
    • Many pre-1978 scores and LP sound recordings are not yet represented in the online catalog. Instead, use the Music Library Card Catalog (Music Library, First Floor), which includes older scores and LP recordings, not yet included in the Vassar Libraries Online Catalog.
