SAULCAT - St Andrews University Library Catalogue

Music scores

The Library's collection of music scores is held on Level 3 of the Main Library.  We have a very large number of older scores, particularly pre-1950 and even pre 1900.  Recent musical material has been added to more selectively, but there have been a number of initiatives over the last couple of years to expand our range.

For all well-known composers, we should have all the critical editions as well as practical editions.

  • Scores (including miniature scores) are at classmark M
  • Literature about Music is at classmark ML
  • Musical instruction and study is at classmark MT

To find a specific score:

  • Check first of all in SAULCAT, the online catalogue.
    Composer's name and / or keywords from the title of the work will help retrieve details of the score, if it is held.

However, if a search in SAULCAT does not prove successful:

  • Look also in the Music Scores catalogue:
    This is in separate volumes at the end of the A-Z sequence of PAGE-CAT volumes, on Level 2 of the Library. This catalogue is arranged alphabetically by composer.
