Music Resources: Complete Works

Greer Music Library (located on the lower level of Cummings Arts Center) serves the research, information and performance needs of the Department of Music and the entire college community. Visitors are welcome!

Complete Works


The music library has built over the years a collection of printed music generally known as "complete works." These are scholarly editions of the works of a composer, are considered to be the equivalent of a reference book, and are meant to be used for research and analysis. They circulate automatically to faculty/grad/honors students for two weeks; in-house use only for all other patrons. These scores all have a Dickinson call number beginning "05" (zero five), then are arranged alphabetically by composer.  Some sets are completed, some are ongoing, and some were never completed (subscription dropped or publisher stopped work on the set).
