What's Worldcat and why should I use it?
Worldcat is a combined catalog of worldwide libraries. So it's great for locating books, recordings and musical scores from other libraries.
BUT it's also a way to search STL's collection. Sometimes the information you find in Worldcat for a book, recording or anthology of music is more complete than our catalog's information.
You can type in the name of a song, musical piece, composer or performer and locate a piece of music in our collection. It's worth a try even if you've already searched our catalog.
After you see your initial Worldcat search results, you can limit to "Musical scores".
In this search, we clicked the Advanced Search link from the library's website.
