"Sheet Music" can mean many things. The library doesn't collect a lot of individual "song sheets" of pop songs or piano music, for example. The individual pieces of music that we have may be found by searching the STL catalog or WorldCat by title or by composer.
While we have a lot of individual pieces, much of our music is found in anthologies. The library collects a lot of classical, jazz, popular and musical theater works, and some notated world music anthologies. Almost all of it will be on the Ground Floor of the library, either in the Stacks "M" collection or the Oversize "M" collection.
In this guide, we use the phrase "music scores" to refer to any individual or anthologized piece of notated music, regardless of style or genre.
