Music Collection Policy

Imprint Date Considerations

Monographs of the last three years are emphasized, with retrospective collecting (especially through donations) considered on a case-by-case basis. Variant score editions and desired sound recording performances are emphasized regardless of the issue date. Compact discs have made desirable the purchase of numerous highly regarded and remastered old recordings and historic performances. Out-of-print desired materials are sought to replace lost materials.

Chronological Period Considerations

Although there are no chronological restrictions on the collection of music materials, emphasis is placed on music of the Medieval Period through the present.
