Finding vocal music can be tricky, especially if the song you're looking for is in an anthology (a collection of songs by one or more composers). And your search strategy will be different if you are looking for an entire opera, oratorio, or musical theater score vs. if you just want to locate an aria or song. (In general, you don't have to worry about entering diacritics in the library catalog -- it should search for the terms without the diacritics.)
