Sound Recordings in the Library

The Multimedia Room in the Kenyon Library has a large collection of world music on CD.  To access materials use the CONSORT catalog link below and type in KEYWORDS from your topic or area of interest.  

EXAMPLE OF A KEYWORD SEARCH:
   ireland AND music (the all capital 'and' just reminds me that I am linking the two words together)      

   'modified' to find "any sound recording"
   ireland AND music

EXAMPLE OF A SERIES TITLE: (series title obtained from a CONSORT record)
   World library of folk and primitive music

EXAMPLE OF A SUBJECT SEARCH:
   Music -- ireland

EXAMPLE OF A COMPOSER/RECORDER/AUTHOR SEARCH:
  
Lomax, Alan 

All searches may then be 'modified' (narrowed in scope) to type of recording and date, though the latter may be somewhat deceiving as it usually picks up the 'published date', which may in fact happen up to a century after a recording was made.  You may also limit to specific library holding the material(s).
