Abstract

The symbols for sharp and flat in music notation occur in the uniform title portions of both bibliographic and authority records. These two symbols present special problems for the retrieval of music materials in online catalogs. The authors surveyed vendors of online systems to determine whether vendors consider this problem in systems design and, if so, to what degree.
