To increase the accuracy of your searches in the online library catalog, include the opus or thematic number of the work if it has one. To locate this number, search in the WORKS list under the composer's name in either Oxford Music Online or the appropriate print volume of the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians in the Reference Room. These are also useful resources for finding out more about a composer, instrument, concept or place related to music.
A great way to find out what new scores and recordings we've received for your instrument is to click on the New Music Materials This Month link on the Music Library home page. Once you're there, click on and then type the name of your instrument in the search box and hit again to see what we've added in the last 30 days for your instrument!
The best way to search for scores or recordings is by KEYWORD using the most distinctive words in the author's name and work title.
You can also specify a particular performer.
