Transcript of Search tips for music on the online catalogue ESTER

Search tips for music on the online catalogue ESTER
Next, you are going to learn about the most common
search types.
All examples are limited with the
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre Library
collection.
The online catalogue ESTER (www.ester.ee)
offers a variety of options for searching musical compositions. Before beginning you should always imagine the result you want to have and choose the search option according to that.

NB! All subject terms and other words are in Estonian!
How to find a sound recording of the
Violin concerto D-major op. 35 by Tchaikovsky?
You could use both, quick search and
extended search. In this case, the
extended search is easier.
The easiest way to find a
musical composition is when you
know the
opus number
of the piece. In that case,
all you need is the
surname of the composer

and the
opus number
- insert both into the
search box.
NB! Opus numbers are written without spaces or punctuation.
Example
choose
Extended search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
insert
Tšaikovski op35
to the word search box
choose the material type
Sound recording
click
Search
Search
35
results found. For more information click on the record.
Let's open the
record number 19.

The result is a
short record
of the sound recording where I can see the
call number
among other things. To get more information, you have to click on
Full Record.
The Full Record shows

the
performance info, subject headings,
etc.
To be certain that you have
reached the piece you wanted it's always recommended to check the
full

record.
With the keyword search you can also get records where the words you inserted
aren't entirely connected with each other.
With the previous search you can also find a record where
"The Bells" op. 35 by Rachmaninov
and some other piece by
Tchaikovsky
are represented.
Although all the search criteria are correct you always may find items that are not what you are looking for, that's why we highly recommend
checking the full record!
When a composer has a personal catalogue of works (e.g. Bach
BWV,
Händel
HWV,
Mozart
KV,
etc.), all it takes is the
catalogue number
to find a particular piece.
NB! Catalogue numbers as well as opus numbers are written without spaces or punctuations.
Example
How to find videos of the Piano concerto
a-minor KV 310 by Mozart?
choose
Extended search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
insert
KV310
into the word search box
choose the material type
Video recording
click
Search
Search
3
results found. For more information open the records as described earlier on.
If a composition doesn't have
neither an opus nor a catalogue number
(or you don't know it) but it has an
original title,
it's useful to use the
title quick search.
NB! The titles are in the
original language.
Example
How to find the piano piece "Aliinale" by Arvo Pärt?
Search
choose
Quick search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
activate
Title
from the drop down menu
insert
Aliinale
into the search box
click
Search
22
results found. For more information click on the title "Aliinale".
You can see a list and can find further information by opening the links. The
icons
on the right hand side help you to determine the
material type.
How to find a video recording of the ballet "Swan Lake" by Tchaikovsky?
Example
Search
choose
Quick search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
activate
Title
from the drop down menu
type into the search box
(in the original language!)
click
Search
62
results found. When you get a very long list, it's useful to
Modify seach.

Limit/Sort – choose
Videorecording
as material type and click
Submit.
4
results found. In this example you can find the full ballet on a DVD under the first record.
When a composition doesn't have neither an
original title nor an opus or catalogue number and the title is only an indication to the
music genre
(symphony, sonata, prelude, waltz, etc.). You have to use the
music genres
in plural.

Next we will present a few more search options when you don't want to find a particular
composition but more of a
general
result.
How to find videos with Anna Netrebko singing?
The
author quick search
doesn't
give a satisfactory result with established
composers (in case of the classics you can find thousands of records) but it works well with searching
interpreters
or
ensembles/orchestras/choirs.
Example
Search
You can use both quick and extended search, this example is done with
quick search:
activate
Author
in the drop down menue
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
insert
Netrebko
into the search box


(always type the surname first)
click
Search
21
results found. You can also use
Modify Search:
material type
Videorecording
submit
14
videos found. For more information open the records.
With the author search
you can also search

orchestras, choirs, ensembles, etc.
How to find sound recordings by the
Orchestra of the 18th Century?
Example
choose
Quick search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
author
Orchestra of the 18th century
click
Search
Search
23
results found.
Subject term search
is
recommended in order to get more
of a general result and not a specific
composition. As subject terms we use fixed
unified Estonian word forms from the
"Estonian Subject Thesaurus".
http://ems.elnet.ee/



You can do several different searches with the subject term search. The most common ones when searching music are by instruments and/or genre.
Instruments as subject words are written in the singular form and genres in the plural form.
You can use both quick and
extended search.
For example you could look for repertory for
a certain
instrument.
However, that
kind of a search isn't recommended with the
most common instruments - the result
would be too wide.
Example
How to find the scores of sonatas for the clarinet?
The basis of this search are two subject terms:
“klarnet” (clarinet) and “sonaadid” (sonatas).
Search
choose

Extended search
catalogue part
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
choose
Subject
for two search boxes from the drop-down menu
insert
klarnet

sonaadid
into the search boxes
choose
Sheet music
as the material type
click
Search
98
results found.
For more information open the records.

enables a list of more complicated
searches. Please check the

as a

in
Cyrillic.
