And, an in-depth look at some conversations weve had via IM, in person, through email, or over the phone:

A student needed help looking for chamber music scores, specifically for either 2 clarinets and 1 bassoon or 2 clarinets and 1 cello.  The librarian walked them through a search in the DePaul VuFind Catalog.  They used the keywords chamber and clarinet and cello (for starters) and scrolled down to check the box for “Music Score” in Formats & Media.

A researcher had found a working paper via Google and wanted to know if the authors had also published a ‘finished’ article on the same topic.  The librarian explained that sometimes the name of the work might change from working paper to published article, so it would be wiser to search for the authors’ names, rather than searching for articles by title.  They did, and found a published chapter – with a slightly different title – in the book: Sage Handbook of European Studies.
