Music: Scores, CDs & online music


We have an extensive collection of music scores on Level 5 of the Hartley Library, in three sequences:

•The main sequence shelved at M (for example the complete works of composers at M 174)
•Miniature and study scores at mM
•Sheet music at pamphlet M

Music Scores Classification

You should use  the library's online catalogue when searching for a specific score. If you are just browsing, the classification in the link above will indicate which section to go to find scores for particular genres of music, e.g. opera.

CDs & DVDs; Film & Music Resources Room

These are shelved in the Film and Music Resources Room on Level 5 of the Hartley Library. We have 5000+ compact discs and DVDs together with listening equipment.

Use the Library's online catalogue, to trace items. 

The shelves are arranged by broad subject headings. The main categories are:

  • Classical: Composers - Arranged in alphabetical order by composer; if a CD contains the works of more than one composer, the first name is used unless another name appears more prominently.
  • Classical: Medieval
  • Classical: Renaissance
  • Films & Shows
  • Historical - For works recorded pre-1950. Such recordings often highlight the work of a particular singer, composer or other artist, and these are filed under the relevant name.
  • Jazz
  • Rock/Pop
  • Spoken Word
  • World

Access to the Film & Music Resources Room on Level 5 of the Hartley Library is card-controlled. Members of the Faculty of Humanities have automatic access. Other members of the University who wish to use the room may have access permission added to their smartcard by emailing directly, specifying the room number (5021) and building (Hartley Library, Building 36), and their ID number.

All other library users please contact the Academic Engagement Librarian for Music or for Film.
