MUSIC RESEARCH GUIDE: Basic Reference

Resources for music research and for finding materials in Parsons Music Library

QUICK TIPS

Reference books are shelved in the reading room.  Reference scores are at the beginning of the scores stack area, where the section labels are yellow.  Call numbers in these areas are preceded by "REF."

Information about composers' collected editions (which pieces are in which volumes) can often be found in the composer's entry in Grove Music Online.  Look for the "Works" section of the entry.
