Reference Collections

The Library's printed Reference Collection is on Level 4, and a wide range of language dictionaries is available on each Level.  Please note, however, that many additional Reference publications can be found in our electronic collections.

An important Reference work for music scholars is the Repertoire internationale des sources musicales, located in our reference Section at Ref Z6811.R4.

The RISM documents printed and manuscript music before the year 1800.  The project is divided into three subseries: A = Inventories of musical sources from 1600-1800 , in manuscript and printed editions, organized by composer. B = Bibliographies of materials organized by particular topic. C= Directories of music libraries around the world. Series A II, Music Manuscripts after 1600, can be searched freely online.
