The University of Iowa Libraries hosts a number of fabulous digital collections. Classical music lovers will want to check out the Ignaz Pleyel Early Editions collection, which features, "over 200 early printed and manuscript scores that represent the work of French composer and music publisher, Ignaz Pleyel (1757-1831)." This collection was curated by Rita Benton, a musicologist who authored the biography Ignace Pleyel, A Thematic Catalogue of his Compositions. Today, the University of Iowa's Music Library is named in honor of Benton, who worked at the university for many years. Visitors can browse this collection by category, including piano methods, string quartets, and violin duets. Perhaps a good place to start is highlights of the collection, which visitors will find on the collection's homepage.
