New Resource – IPA Source

The University Libraries have just acquired IPA Source – a database of International Phonetic Alphabet and literal transcriptions of over 4,500 opera arias and art songs. A range of composers are represented, from Bach to Zingarelli. Users can browse by composer, poet, or title, or by opera aria or Latin text.  The database also includes tools to help with diction and sound recordings of texts in Latin, Italian, German and French intended for pronunciation help for the singer.

Doing a Research Paper and Don’t Know Where to Start?

The Library Can Help!  
 
Beginning October 26th and continuing through November 20th, Monday – Friday, University Libraries will once again offer Individual Research Appointments (IRAs) for undergraduate students.  
 
Individual Research Appointments provide students with one-on-one research assistance to help them identify and locate library and online sources and to help them formulate search strategies.
 
To schedule an appointment, please call 419.372.6943 or stop by the Research & Information Desk on the first floor of Jerome Library.  Please schedule your appointment by midnight of the day before you would like to meet with someone.  This allows librarians time to prepare.
