REMIX: ABLE Search Tips & FAQs


How to Search for Resources in the ABLE Arts Resource Center?

The ABLE Arts Resource Center can be searched using several different classifications.

The first way is to use keyword search. Keywords are related to the subject content of the various resources. Keywords can be typed into the search bar which will search the entire collection. To the left of the search results you are able to filter results based on keyword, publication year, publication (format of resource), publication type, and file type.

Keyword searches will be useful if you have a clear idea of what you are looking for in the resource center.

The second way is to use the ABLE Arts Resource Center Taxonomy. The ABLE Arts Resource Center Taxonomy was developed by Dr. Rhoda Bernard, Managing Director of the Berklee Institute for Arts Education and Special Needs and Zoe Gelinas, Post-Master’s Fellow. This taxonomy will be helpful if you want to browse all information available for broad categories. The taxonomy will allow users to search based on the following categories:

  • Diagnosis
  • Instrument/Setting
  • Grade Level
  • General Terms

Taxonomy searches will be useful if you are looking for a wide range of resources in a broad category.

The third way to search the ABLE Arts Resource Center is by the format of the resource. The following formats are available in the resource center:

  • Articles
  • Assessments
  • Audio
  • Blog Posts
  • Book Chapters
  • Books
  • Conference Proceedings
  • Lesson Plans
  • Position Papers
  • Presentations
  • Reports
  • Rubrics
  • Videos
  • Webinars
  • Website Links

Format searches will be useful if you are looking for a specific type of resource.
