MaagNET - the online catalog; provides access to books, scores, recordings, videos, journal subscription and holdings information, and some government documents owned by Maag Library. (DO NOT use the catalog to look for specific journal or magazine articles!) Accessible from http://maag.ysu.edu. Under the "QuickLinks" heading or using the default search box!
You are strongly encouraged to begin your searches using the Keyword Search This is because "keyword" searching:
Remember! -- think of as many different possible titles of a work as you can!
For example, The Marriage of Figaro might be Le Nozze di Figaro or Die Hochzeit des Figaro;
Die Zauberflöte is also known as The Magic Flute. Haydn's "A Pastorale" is also known as "My Mother Bids Me Bind My Hair."
Also -- think of as many identifying elements as you can!
For example, thematic catalog number [e.g., "BWV" = "Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis no. " (Bach), "K." = "Köchel no." (Mozart), "D." = "Deutsch no." (Schubert), "R" = Ryom no. (Vivaldi)], key, opus number, type of genre, instrumentation (and names for that genre or instrumentation/voicing in appropriate foreign languages).
If you are singing an aria from an opera, cantata, or oratorio, make sure you know (or find out!) the name of the larger work from which the aria is excerpted
If you are singing a musical theatre song, it is helpful to know from which musical the song comes! Some arias and songs will be available ONLY in a complete score of the larger work!
Always know the names of the composers of the pieces you are working on/seeking!
