About the Music Catalogue
The Music Catalogue contains descriptions of over 300 pieces of sheet music (1867-1980s), and over 500 sound recordings (1914-2000s) written, published or performed by western Canadians, or which have a Western or Canadian theme.
To do a wildcard search use "*" at the end of a string of letters. Example: "music*" will find music, musician, musical, etc.
To narrow a search (boolean "and") use "&" between the search terms. Example: "calgary & march" will find records in which both words occur.
To broaden a search (boolean "or") use "/" between the search terms. Example: "march / waltz / two step" will find records in which one of these terms occurs.
To search for one term but not another use "!" between the search terms. Example: "waltz ! toronto" will find sheet records related to waltzes which were not published in Toronto.
