UWO's score collection

The Music Library owns one of the largest score collections at a Canadian university, but finding individual vocal works can be challenging. Ask a full-time staff member for assistance if you can't find what you're looking for. If the score isn't in the collection, we can help you place an interlibrary loan request and we'll consider purchasing the work ourselves.
