Music Multi-Search

Introducing Music Multi-Search:  an exciting new tool to help you pinpoint the resources you need most from the library’s holdings and our music databases.

Music Multi-Search is a customized discovery tool that simultaneously searches African American Music Reference, Classical Music Library, Classical Music Reference Library, Classical Scores Library, Garland Encyclopedia of World Music, Grove Music, Naxos Jazz, Naxos Music and the Samford Libraries Catalog, including all print scores and CDs in our collection.

By beginning your search using Music Multi-Search, you narrow your focus to these specific music resources, as opposed to the entire collection of Samford Library.  Currently Music Multi-Search only finds resources to which we have full access, as well.

Some full-text music score search results.

Short descriptions of each of the databases included in Music Multi-Search can be found on the library’s Music Research Guide, here: .  This guide was developed specifically for Samford’s Music Department by our Music Librarian.

We encourage you to try out the new Music Multi-Search, and let us know what you think.
