The Supplementary LP Recording Catalog contains access to recordings cataloged prior to 1976 not otherwise included in OBIS. The listing includes composers, performers, titles and subjects interfiled. When critical information was included on the backs of cards, the verso was also scanned in the preservation process.


The content of some streaming resources cannot be discovered in OBIS (such as Met Opera On Demand and Smithsonian Global Sound). Available content must be searched directly in the resource.
