Additional Music Resource:

The Howard W. Wildin Sheet Music Collection contains 18,584 pieces, mainly of original American popular sheet music dating back to the mid-19th century including several hundred published musical and film song folios, musical artist folios, musical genre folios, and dance folios.  Some pieces from different countries are also part of the collection.

Mr. Wildin collected the materials over many years.  The entire collection has been scanned and, as restricted by copyright laws, those 75 years old and older are available online, but you will need to visit our library to view those items. Funding for this project was provided by Howard W. Wildin.
