1. When searching for music scores start by going to the Advanced Search option in the Library Catalog.


2. Enter your search terms andselect Music score underneath "Material Type":


3. Music titles, language, arrangement, and instrumentation can often make searching for music scores tricky. If your search doesn’t work at first, try thinking about how you could alter your search. 

For example, Chopin’s Prelude, Op. 28, No. 15 is commonly referred to as the “Raindrop prelude.”  However, searching for “Raindrop prelude” will miss relevant items in the catalog.  If you search by the more formal name “Prelude in D flat” and include the composer’s name you’ll have much better results.
