Find Music Scores

Scores (written music for a composition) are shelved in the 780-789 section of the collection on the third floor.

To find a score for a work:

  1. search FOCUS by author (composer’s) name,
  2. then click on the Limit/Sort button near the top of the screen and
  3. choose music score under Material Type.

Ask a research librarian for help if you need assistance with this type of search.
