Library Resources for FSU Musicologists


Greetings! I've collected a few links for your perusing pleasure. Consider this a selective, not comprehensive list of resources related to research in music at FSU (and elsewhere). 

Questions? Please ask! We're here to help you!

Special Collections

The Allen Music Library has a small, but select Special Collections. Many of the items (rare books, early editions of scores, expensive facsimiles) are cataloged and listed in the FSU library catalog. Other items, such as manuscript and sheet music collections, are listed in finding aids on our Special Collections web page.

Looking for a paper topic? Or perhaps a thesis or dissertation topic? Our Special Collections may hold the key for you.

A few personal favorites:
