It is better to do Worksheet 7 online. Both the RILM and Iter portions concern the use of an online electronic database, so items may be easily cut and pasted in Netscape between a window with the online database (RILM or Iter), and another window with the Worksheet. It is useful to have two windows open, one with the Worksheet, one with the online database. [To open a second window in Netscape, press Ctrl-N.]
To make saving longer items of information easier, these databases also offer the option of saving the information to files, or e-mailing the information to yourself.

To e-mail the records, click on the menu button "Kept":
This will produce a screen with an option to e-mail the marked record(s).
You may notice that the "Kept" list contains less information than the first list produced by the Search. Most details of publication disappear.
This is not a problem. When you e-mail the records to yourself, the missing details are included. Note that you need these details for your Select Bibliography.
E-mail the results for these ten (or as many that are available in Iter, if fewer) Items to yourself.
When received, forward (by e-mail) this list to the instructor (at gcallon @ ca.inter.net or gordon.callon @ acadiau.ca).
[This is one way to get the text of the ten items to put in your Select Bibliography.]
NOTE: This Select Bibliography MUST be in the correct format for Bibliographies, as described in:
To ensure this, each student will select the term or name from the list below that begins with the same one, two, or three letters as the first one, two, or three letters of the student's First name.
Select as many letters as possible. If this is not successful, select for the first letter another useful letter of the alphabet, closest to the correct letter. [For example, I would search for terms that begin Go... . If this did not work, I would then search for a term beginning Gr… (etc.).]
When using a name, use the person's last name (family name), together with the given name(s).
Caution: For many older terms and names there are alternate spellings. It is essential that you check these alternate spellings. To determine what these are, look up the term or name selected in www.grovemusic.com (New Grove Dictionary of Music & Musicians, 2nd edition on the web)
Put your Select Bibliography in the box below. [The box will scroll to make room for extra text.]
When you are finished working in Iter, remember to Exit.
In Iter, click on the "Exit" icon in the menu at the top:
Check to ensure that you have answered all questions.
