Obviously, we're a big fan of using libraries to borrow music.
First, it's free (as long as you remember to return what you borrow). Second, the available catalog is immense and will contain works old and new, and in some cases, unavailable for purchase.

Here are some helpful videos to show you the ropes, both for finding music here at the Rita Benton Music Library and at other libraries around the world.
