A Unique Resource for Music Scholarship

This invaluable high-quality index for music researchers and students is the only electronic resource for finding individual pieces of music published in standard scholarly editions, series and sets from ancient Greek times to present.

Comprehensive Records

Designed for music research and students, Index to Printed Music (IPM) provides over 532,000 records of individual music works. Specialized search limiters allow users to search by genre (e.g., anthem, aria, ballad, chant), language of text, and year published. A separate collection authority link makes it possible to search for titles of music collections as well as individual compositions.

The database has received support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.


The Advanced Search screen takes most of the guessing out of complicated searching for savvy users, and the simple layout makes communicating available options to new users a breeze.
