HTI: How to Search for a Source
  • If you know the HTI Source Code, search:
  • Find sources where the - HTI Source Code - starts with (type in the first part of the code, leaving out any number or lowercase letter following a space at the end)
  • If you know the source's STC number (in the Short Title Catalogue), or its T number ('PC' number in Temperley's The Music of the English Parish Church), or its C number (in Britton, Lowens & Crawford's American Sacred Music Imprints), any of these can be converted to the HTI Source Code.
  • If you know the source's title, search:
    Find sources where the - Title - contains - (type in a few CONSECUTIVE words from the first few words of the title).

    Short titles are used. They always include the first few words.
  • If you know the source's compiler (or composer or reviser), search:
    Find sources where the - Compiler - starts with - (type in the person's last name).
