There are several ways to do searches in the online catalog. One of the best ways to search for music is to search using keywords.
There are terms that will provide the best results.
Examples of such terms include name of composers, names of editors, names of publishers (e.g. henle), numbers (e.g. opus numbers, BWV numbers, Köchel numbers, etc.), genre or form terms, distinctive titles, and names of instruments.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF SOME KEYWORD SEARCHES:
