University of South Carolina School of Music: Sheet Music Collection

The University of South Carolina Music Library has an extensive collection of over 10,000 pieces of popular, sacred, and classical sheet music that can be easily searched, due to the digital sheet music project on the School of Music website. Additionally, the cover and page images are available for those pieces in the public domain. The top 5 searches are listed on the homepage, and the titles are clickable, so visitors can see the pieces everyone else wants to see as well. Visitors can also search the library's collection using the "Quick Search" box in the middle of the homepage, or they can click on "Advanced Search" to be linked to the page that allows searching by a multitude of categories. Visitors can search by such criteria as composer, arranger, publisher, donor name, and of course, title. Once they pull up a record, visitors will see the usual details about the music, like publisher, date, composer, and the library call number. Under the Notes section of the record visitors can view the first line of text and the first line of the refrain. If the music is in the public domain, they will also see a clickable image of the front and back covers, as well as the pages in between. Visitors can choose "View Book Format" or "View Printable Format" to view them. If they choose book form, each page of the sheet music will be a thumbnail that visitors can click to explore larger, easily readable and navigable images.
