MUSIC RESEARCH GUIDE: Basic Reference

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

QUICK TIPS

The reference section, which contains both books and scores, is at the front of the Music Library stacks.  Call numbers in this area are preceded by "REF," but they otherwise look like regular Music Library call numbers, from M through MT.

Information about composers' collected works 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.
