Helping you discover new pieces to perform.

Cataloged scores in MSPAL are in these locations:

  • Floor 1
    • Reference desk
    • Course reserves (ask at desk)
    • Lowens Room, open shelves
    • Lowens Room, rare stacks (ask at desk)
  • Floor 2
    • Miniature scores
    • Folio
    • Oversize (ask at desk; now located in Severns Library)

On the UMD Libraries' homepage, search for your score by composer, title, genre, or instrument, then use the format limits along the left side of the screen to restrict your results to scores.
