This invaluable resource for music researchers and students indexes music from ancient Greek times to the present. It is the only electronic resource for finding individual pieces of music printed in standard scholarly editions, with hundreds of thousands of records of individual music works. The database has received support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

With over 425,000 records available for searching, the Index to Printed Music (IPM) provides detailed indexing across a range of categories, including:
- All Names ID (a unique alpha numeric code that identifies editors, librettists, composers)
- Composer ID
- Format (including full score, miniature score, parts, keyboard reduction, piano-vocal, etc.)
- Language (language of a text)
