Q. How do I find the score of a song that is published in an anthology?

Answer

Start with the song indexes that are located in the reference section (Music Ref ML 128 .S3). Most of these are organized by song title, although a few also include indexes for composer's name and first lines. If you find the song in the index, there will be a code or a number at the end of the entry. Look back to the beginning of the index, and there will be a list of the anthologies indexed. Find the code or number that was at the end of the song's description to see what anthology that song is in. Most of the anthologies we have will have their call numbers written in pencil in this list, but if there is no call number for an anthology you need, try looking up that anthology by title in the online catalog, just in case.
