How do I find sheet music or musical scores?
Is there an easy way to find music books in the catalog?
The library doesn't loan sheet music, but we have music books for various instruments, and some music scores.
There isn't one broad search you can do in the catalog to pull up all of the books containing music notation. You can try searching subjects such as piano music scores, maybe with qualifying words like piano music simplified or guitar music tablature. More examples:
- vocal piano scores
- rock music scores
- operas scores
- music fake books (links to catalog)
Digital music collections guide – a guide to online sources for digital copies of music scores.
International Music Score Library Project – "Sharing the world’s public domain music."
Mutopia – All of the music on Mutopia may be freely downloaded, printed, copied, distributed, modified, performed and recorded.
