Search Roger for CDs, DVDs, and older formats. Roger also links to recordings in some (not all) of the online databases noted below. Usually a combination of keywords works best, such as composers and/or performers, piece, or pop song or album titles.
As an option, the Roger Audio scope will exclude scores, books, DVDs and other formats from your search result, useful especially for famous composers. Roger also has a Films & Videos scope that's useful if you want to only see what DVDs or videos we have of an opera or concert.
Using the Audio Scope in Roger with display both physical audio recordings and streaming media. If you want to eliminate streaming audio from a search result so it's CDs, Vinyl LPs, and Audio Tapes only: click the "Modify Search" button, then limit the Material Type to "CD Audio" or "Records/Tapes." The call numbers for CDs in the Roger begin with "MUD", Vinyl LPs "MU", Audio Cassettes "MUC", and Open Reel Tapes "MUR." Due to space considerations in the Geisel Library, these formats are kept in the library's Annex off campus. To have them retrieved click on the "Request" link to the right of the call number and the item's status.
