RIAM Library catalogue or just Google riam library catalogue – will appear as first result Oxford Music Online or just Google grove music online – will appear as first result or: use “Electronic Resources” link from RIAM catalogue
Overview of Searching: Google vs. Catalogues Google Search engine does most of the work Suggests other spellings Brings most likely relevant material to the top Access to full document Traditional catalogues / databases Searcher needs to formulate searches carefully May not offer help on spelling Often relevant material way down the list Usually access to citation only
Overview of Searching: Google vs. Catalogues Google search e.g. as you like it Wikipedia often first result in search
Overview of Searching: Google vs. Catalogues Catalogue search e.g. as you like it Note: in many library catalogues and databases, typing in keywords without qualifiers can lead to unsatisfactory results. Here, for example, the words as you like it are found anywhere in the record, not necessarily side-by-side or in the same order.
Overview of Searching: Google vs. Catalogues Catalogue search e.g. ‘as you like it’ – using single quotes to search exact phrase Using a phrase search improves the results dramatically – all words must be adjacent and in the same order. In the RIAM catalogue, enclose the phrase in single quotes.
