Welcome to the 6th Floor Houston Cole Library Guide for Music!
At the time International Music Score Library Project was added to LibGuides, it had 167,455 scores. Petrucci Music Library or IMSLP is a wiki that collects and maintains a page to share public domain music, or music that has gone out of copyright. If you can't find the score you are looking for in the Library's collection, and the score is more than 120 years old, chances are it is located here.
Steps to using JaxCat, the Houston Cole Library catalog
2. Type in your search terms or title.
3. Look for available books in the results list and write down the call number.
4. The call number is the book's physical address or unique identifier. For example, books that begin with the call number "M" are about music and are found on the 6th floor. Another hint is that books of similar subjects are grouped together on the shelf so if you find one book, you will find others on the same topic.
5. While you are looking at the book in the catalog, notice the underlined subjects, these are like hashtags. The subjects in the catalog are linked to books of similar topics. For example, it is possible to find one good title, and then use the subjects in the catalog record to find similar titles.
6. If you have questions, contact your librarian, Carley Knight at esknight at jsu dot edu
