Special Collections: Sheet Music
How to Find Sheet Music
The library has an extensive sheet music collection which is partially cataloged. Visit this page for frequent updates. Much of the sheet music is indexed by the Sheet Music Card Index, found at the end of the Subject File in the Main Reading Room. This indexes the music by composer, title, and publisher.
The cataloged collections include:
1. General Sheet Music
Baltimore Publishers A-Z
2. Eubie Sheet Music Collection, MS 2800.1
This collection contains sheet musics and other materials from the estate of Baltimore born composer and pianist James Herbert “Eubie” Blake. Includes sheet music written by Eubie Blake as well as other composers.
3. The Star-Spangled Banner Sheet Music Collection
These collections include approximately 150 versions of the national anthem.
