Finding Audio Recordings in Parsons Music Library

Tips for finding audio recordings by using OneSearch

  • First, select "Audio" from the left dropdown (circled in blue below)

  • Enter as much information in the search box as you know (title, composer, etc).  If nothing comes up, try removing one or more keywords.
  • If you're looking for a specific song, select "that contain the exact phrase" from the middle dropdown (circled in red above).
  • If you're looking for a piece with a generic title ("Symphony," "Sonata," Concerto," etc.), try entering the composer's last name and the genre in plural ("Symphonies," "Sonatas," "Concertos," etc)
  • If you want to browse our LP (Vinyl) collection, click here.
