Unique Facets for Browsing and Filtering

Music and Dance Online search results have unique facets to refine the search. Examples of some of these facets include: 

  • format (audio, video, text, etc.)
  • content types (music recording, scores, biography, documentary, photograph, etc.)
  • instrument played (voice, chorus, trumpet, piano, cello, etc.)

Some of these facets only appear when specific sub-collections are searched, such as Music Online: Classical Scores Library. Others appear for all of Music and Dance Online, such as those in the example below under "Refine Your Search."
