Digital scores: About this guide / Library resources

This guide contains links to digitized score collections, including both subscription-based services available through JUILCAT Plus, as well as free collections of public domain resources from libraries and archives around the world.

About this LibGuide

This guide provides descriptions and links to selected digital score collections, both those available on subscription via JUILCAT Plus, and those available freely on the web. When searching for scores:

  1. We recommend that patrons always check the library catalog first.
  2. Check through our subscription-based digital resources (linked at right).
  3. Check through a free online collection of digitized scores. Keep in mind that scores that are available freely on the web are public domain scores only, meaning these resources are no longer in copyright. Note that many of these are reprints from nineteenth-century complete works editions that are out of copyright (the same editions that are typically reprinted by Kalmus, Dover, and Masters Music publications).
