This guide covers the different types of music resources available at Milner Library.


This is the first place you'll look for a book on music. This catalog searches the collection here at Milner.

Couldn't find what you wanted in Milner's catalog? Use the I-Share catalog to find books (and scores) in other Illinois libraries. You'll need to set up your I-Share account to request books through I-Share (ask a librarian if you have questions about this).

If you need to look beyond Milner's catalog and the I-Share catalog, Worldcat is the place to go. Worldcat lets you request books and scores from all over the USA and sometimes overseas. You can search for a book in Worldcat and it will automatically fill out an interlibrary loan request form for you (see below for information on interlibrary loan).
