Finding Scores on the Shelf

Where to look in the Library

Scores are on the 4th floor of the BU Library. Look at the map at the bottom of the stairs for the exact location.

Score Call Numbers

Scores start either with M, MM, ML, or MT. On the shelf, the "M" call numbers come first, and are ordered from low to high based on the number after the M.

For example, the following call numbers are ordered from first to last:

  • M2 .C642 no. 1 (Chamber duets by Antonio Cesti)
  • M22 .B11 k59 (Bach's Goldberg Variations)
  • M177 . S395 B7 (Schubert chamber music)

Don't worry about what the numbers mean, just note that they are ordered from low (M2) to high (M177)
