OBIS Search Strategy for Locating CD Notes

1. Start with OBIS

2. Do a Keyword Search

3. Enter the name of the piece and the word "notes"

     Example: Kuhnau biblical sonatas notes

4. Limit to recordings. Select an item on the list and notice that the words you searched are bolded. The call number for the item is highlighted in Green. Take this number to the Conservatory Library Circulation Desk and ask for the CD. You can scan the notes that are included in the recording. Be sure you cite them. 

5. You may also find CD notes for streaming audio in Naxos or DRAM. Be sure you cite those as well.
