[ The Assignment: Iter ]

Music 1253 Worksheet no. 7
The Internet 2: Iter (online Renaissance database)

RILM (studied in the previous Worksheet, number 6) and Iter are subscription databases. This means that only individuals logged into the Acadia University network can access these resources. Only limited access is possible using a dial-up connection. If you want to use RILM and Iter, or any other subscription services from an external account, this is possible by using the Acadia Proxy Server. Instructions are available at the Vaughan Library site, in the Technical Tips: Connect from Off-campus: VPN (Virtual Private Network) instructions section. [The user downloads and installs VPN software, then uses the Proxy connection that is part of this software.]

It is better to do Worksheet 7 online. Like the RILM database (Worksheet 6), Worksheet 7 concerns the use of an online electronic database, Iter, so items may be easily cut and pasted in Internet Explorer (or another browser) 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 Internet Explorer or Firefox, 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 keep this part of the worksheet interesting, each student in the class will be assigned a different term or name.

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 names there are alternate spellings. It is essential that you check these alternate spellings. To determine what these are, look up the name selected in www.grovemusic.com (Grove Music Online)
