DiscoverUR (Sibley Music Library): Basic Search Functions

Search tips for using UR's discovery interface, DiscoverUR

Basic Search

Starting your search on the Sibley Library homepage begins with DiscoverUR. Each tab will search for something different. See below for additional information about what you can search.

 

Catalog

Search for books, e-books, scores, recordings, videos, and other items owned by the University of Rochester Libraries. When viewing search results, use the options to refine your search on the left to improve relevance or to expand your search. For the best user experience, sign into My Account on the search results page. 

From the dropdown menu to the left of the search box you can choose to search all UR Libraries, or limit your search to just material owned by Sibley.
