Sheet Music Index

Search the Index

Sheet Music Index
The index contains records for approximately half the sheet music collection of the UO Libraries Music Services Department (composers with last names A-J, with the remainder in process). The index may be searched by keyword or browsed by composer, title, year, or topic. Titles in a subcollection of music by women composers may be browsed separately.

Requesting items
Guidelines for use and requesting materials are available on the Music Services site. Selected items have been digitized and are available in the UO Libraries digital collections, in the Historic Sheet Music collection.

Technical information
This index is based on the Biblio module of Drupal. The data has undergone a journey and series of conversions over many years: from computer tape, printout, Access database, Excel, EndNote, EndNote XML, to Biblio. This online index contains known problems, notably display of composer and lyricist names and dates, but in the interest of providing access to the collection, the index has been made available in beta form. Suggestions for technical solutions are welcome.

This online database was developed 2009-2010 by Rebecca Belford, Glenda Claborne, Joshua Kielas, and Katy Lenn. Metadata and data entry was provided over the years by students, staff, and volunteers in the Music Services department under the leadership of Leslie Bennett.
