Music Subject Guide: Scores/Books/Recordings

Finding scores in the Ely Library

Finding Items on the Shelf

When you look up a book in our catalog, you'll be given a "call number" for that book.  Call numbers are on the spine labels like you see in the picture.

The range of call numbers for each stack floor is on a chart in the elevator.

Music materials are usually located on the 4th Floor of the library stacks.

NOTE:  If you are looking for an oversized score (some 20th and 21st century pieces are large...think Henry Cowell) try looking on the bottom shelf near where the material should be.  Oversized scores often do not fit on the shelf as easily as others.

Ely Library Catalog

The Ely Library has a large collection of music scores including early music through the 21st century.  In addition to our extensive instrumental music collection, we also have operas, musicals, voice and piano reductions, and many other vocal resources.

We also have hundreds of classical, jazz, and world music CDs and DVDs.
