CONSULS catalog workstations are concentrated on the first floor of the Haas Library, but there are some workstations on each of the other floors of the library. You may logon to CONSULS via the WCSU Libraries Homepage at library.wcsu.edu or directly at www.consuls.org. For more detailed instructions on searching, please see the yellow CONSULS flyer on the display rack on the first floor.
Please Note: CONSULS ignores upper and lower case, and you may omit punctuation, except the hyphen which must be replaced by a space.
To find DVDs about the composer or musician, type the person's name last-name-first as SUBJECT. At the resulting headings display, click Limit/Sort and then select DVD under "Material Type."
Musical compositions are often known by more than one title, for example, Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony. In library catalogs, works with multiple titles are cataloged under a single uniform title, in this case Symphonies. no. 3, op. 55, Eb major under the composer's name (Beethoven, Ludwig van, 1770-1827).
To find individual tracks on sound recordings, try a KEYWORDS search on words from the track title (example: my funny valentine).
Use the * (asterisk) as a truncation symbol to retrieve variant forms of a word root. Use the Boolean OR to expand your search by including synonyms and related terms. When using two different Boolean commands in the same search statement ("and" and "or" in the preceding examples) you must include parentheses to indicate which command is to be performed first.
There is a limit of ten (10) Inter-Campus Loan requests per person. DVDs and CDs are available via Inter-Campus Loan. Please allow 4-5 days for delivery to the Haas Circulation Desk. Items borrowed via Inter-Campus Loan may be renewed for an additional borrowing period if no one has placed a HOLD on the item.
The Haas Library subscribes to many print magazines and journals in music. Additional music periodicals are available in online full-text in journal databases. To find out if WCSU subscribes to a specific periodical in print or online:
1. Select Journal Title at the CONSULS main menu, then type the name of the periodical (example: down beat) and press RETURN. If a title list appears on the screen, select the desired title, then look inside the box to find WCSU holdings. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see if WCSU owns backfiles on microfilm or microfiche.
2. To find out if a given periodical is available in full-text in one or more of WCSU's online databases, use the Journal Finder available under Articles & Databases on the WCSU Libraries Homepage (library.wcsu.edu).
If the CSU Libraries do not own the book or periodical you need, you may request delivery of the item via Interlibrary Loan using the online ILLiad system available at: libguides.wcsu.edu/ill.
