Music scores and sound recordings: Online scores

Tips for finding music scores and sound recordings.

Some online scores can be found in OneSearch. These link to the Music Online database. 

The Music Online database includes some in-copyright material from Boosey and Hawkes and selected material from the University Music Editions microfilm series. The collection includes works spanning time periods from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Coverage of score types range from full scores, study scores, piano and vocal scores, and piano reductions.

Of course, no Music Library, or music database, is comprehensive, so below are some important online music score sources for scores that you won't find through OneSearch.
