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.
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.
If you know you are looking only for musical scores, use this tab to pre-limit to that format.
If you know you are looking only for sound recordings owned by the library (CDs or LPs, excluding streamed audio), use this tab to pre-limit to that format.
If you know you are looking only for video recordings owned by the library (DVDs or videotapes, excluding streamed video), use this tab to pre-limit to that format.
If you know you are looking only for printed books about something, use this tab to pre-limit to that format.
If you know the title of a particular journal and want to see if we subscribe (in paper or electronically), use this tab. Please note that this will not retrieve individual articles, just journals in their entirety.
