1. To find music in the libraries, go to the library's homepage, and in the main search bar, type in as much as you know about the music. For example, you can include title, key, opus number, publisher or performer information. Hit enter.
2. In the results, click the link on the bottom of the "Books & Media" box to "view all results".
3. Use the links on the left to refine your search. You can specify that you want printed music (score), sound recording, or video recording. You can also specify if you want to limit to only online resources under "availability". Under "Resource Type" you can select "scores" for printed music, or "audio" for sound recordings and more.
Tips: Try using the English plural of a generic title, such as symphonies or sonatas, instead of the singular version of the term.
If you use connector words, such as AND, OR, be sure to capitalize them in this search.
Many libraries have begun digitizing their primary source materials. Once you know which library owns a specific manuscript or edition, check the library's website to see if a digital image is available.
