Summon/OneSearch can help!

How can you search across all of the streaming resources we offer and find that recording or video? Use OneSearch/Summon!

  1. Go to
  2. Find the OneSearch/Summon box on the page
  3. Type in your search words. LESS IS MORE!
    • For this example, let's search for Beethoven's String Quartet op. 130,
  4. Here's what my search looks like:
    • Why just beethoven string quartet 130 ??
      • opus is a common word, so it can be omitted
      • Beethoven is not a common name; Ludwig is not needed to narrow the search
      • While smaller numbers (1-8) will show up frequently, higher numbers (e.g., 130) do not
      • Economizing the search words can result in a more accurate search!

Now what? That's a LOT of items (over 25,000!).

See the options on the left hand side? We call them facets. Choose "MORE" under CONTENT TYPE to find audio recordings.
