New Search Added -
    Author/Creator Sorted by Title Browse

[September 3, 2003]
A new "Author/Creator Sorted by Title Browse" has been added to the list of indexes in Basic Search. This new search locates works by the name of the author/creator, and sorts the results by title, with editions of the same work grouped together. Note: for librarians, this is commonly referred to as a "name/title" search.

This search is particularly useful for finding works of musical composers, as well as for authors whose works may have been issued in many editions. To use the search, go the the Basic Search screen and highlight search in the "Search Type" box (as shown in the screen shot below).

In addition, this example screen shot shows some search results for a search on "dvorak antonin."
