We designed this research guide to introduce you to the field of music. You'll find the materials, search tools, and other resources you need to start your research.

Find scores in the catalog

You can do an advanced catalog search and limit to "Score" in the Format box. By entering a keyword (band, symphony, piano) you will get a large number of results. Adding specific keywords will narrow your results significantly.

If you have a specific composer in mind, do an author search in the catalog.

Another option is to search by subject heading such as Music -- Manuscripts -- Facsimiles OR Music by women composers -- 20th century.

All of our sheet music is in the Fine Arts Library in the Music Building and the staff there can help you locate anything you find in the catalog.
