A Few Things to Know
1. Items being added to the Music Library's collection take some extra time to be received and processed. If you request a score, it's likely to take weeks to arrive and be available, not days. Sometimes we can rush a purchase, but that often depends on how or from who we are purchasing the score.
2. There are some types of scores the Music Library does not purchase.
- Choral octavos (so difficult to manage, and one copy doesn't supply a choir)
- Works for solo classical guitar or solo harp (UI does not have programs for these instruments)
- Score and parts for works with more than 10 players. For large ensemble works, the Library will purchase just the score or a condensed form of the work (e.g., a concerto condensed for the soloist + piano)
- Digital scores to distribute as pdfs. For now, if the Music Library purchases a score that is sold as a digital file, we license the right to print one physical copy to add to the Library's collection.
