Search for books, journals, music scores and sound and visual recordings listed in the Vassar Online Catalog.*

HINT: for effective music searches DON'T use keyword.

Can't find something? Not all Music Library materials can be found through the online catalog. For a complete search, you must check both the online catalog and the Music Library card catalog.

Find it in Other Libraries


Use WorldCat to find books, musical scores, sound and visual recordings in other libraries. *Note most libraries will only lend out printed materials (books and scores). To get items you find in WorldCat that are not at Vassar, place an Interlibrary loan request called  ILLiad.

These databases use the same set of subject headings we use in our online catalog. If you don't know what subject heading to use, try a keyword search first and follow subject headings for relevant books to find others on the same topic.
