Finding printed scores (printed music) in the Library, finding digital scores, and borrowing scores from other libraries.

Scores defined

Musical score

In a library setting, score refers to printed music.

Most online vendors refer to all printed music as sheet music.

In a library, sheet music refers only to loose, unbound music, which the duPont-Ball Library does not have.
