Troubleshooting: Finding a work


While in most cases, specific searches yield efficient results, there are times when a generalized search can be more useful - a case in point would be files in smaller sections which may only have the surname of composers.


Out of academic authenticity, all materials, especially those in Spanish and German, are noted with appropriate diacritic symbols (though Handel is minus the umlaut, owing that the composer dropped its use in becoming an English citizen) Using the search engine should take this into account; often there should be no problems with names like Béla Bartók, however, lesser used symbols like those in Antonín Dvořák may require more a more detailed search.

Extra files with the more common spellings have been made available in order to redirect users to the files for which they are most likely to be looking.
