OneSearch is the Ball State Libraries' search tool for materials in the library and beyond.
Start with a basic search using keywords, for example Bellini's opera, Norma:
From preliminary results, click on "More..." Under CONTENT TYPE, click on Video Recording. Next, scroll up to click "Apply"
Click on "Locations" to find the call numbers (they begin with "DVD Video.") Take the number to the Education, Music and Media counter on the Lower Level. Note: the main "author" of a DVD is the director, not the composer or performer.
All public computers in the University Libraries have CD/DVD players. In addition, you can use the viewing/listening booths to the north of the books about music, and you can checkout laptops from the Education, Music and Media information desk.
Headphones can also be checked out at the information desk.
Many concert artists and music organizations have official YouTube channels where you can view recordings of concert performances. Follow the links below to explore some of these channels.
