Music: Music Scores in the Colby Libraries

Music resources at Colby and other great web resources for music research.

Music Scores @ Colby USE CBBCat

  • Sample Search: Beethoven piano sonata* 32
  • Search terms:  Composer, Instrument, Words in the Title, Opus or Work Number
  • Hint: Use an asterisk* in a keyword search to retrieve plurals or spelling variations
  • Searching for music scores can be tricky:
    • Sometimes particular pieces are included in large collections of piano music, quartets, sonatas, vocal music, etc., and cataloging doesn't always list every piece in a particular score 
    • Sometimes the music you need is in the complete works of a composer, but every piece won't be listed in our online catalog
    • Thus, we may in fact have the music you need in our collection.
    • Search MaineCat or World Cat to find musical scores that you can borrow from other libraries. Links are on the Library Home Page
    • So, always consult with the Art/Music Librarian for assistance.
