Searching by title for videos and recorded music
In this part of the tutorial, we will discuss how to find a video or musical recording when you know all or part of the title. Titles can vary, especially with a piece of music that may be known by 2-3 different names. Fortunately the library catalog offers a variety of approaches for just such situations.
When you know all or the first part of a title:
From the main search screen, select the link for "Title" to go to the title search page. Here you will find several examples and a box in which you may type in your title. Type as much of the title from its beginning as you desire.
Notice that for single word titles, you may follow the title with the "pipe" symbol ( | ). The pipe symbol looks like two vertical lines, one on top of the other. The pipe symbol is usually to the right of your keyboard paired with the backslash \ symbol. For example, if you type the word mask alone you will get everything that begins with that word. Typing mask| (mask followed by the pipe symbol) you will get just the items called "Mask".
Of course, often we only know part of the title or perhaps the popular name for a piece of music. Let's go to the next page and learn how to search for incomplete titles.
