When you need a song or aria, you might not know what show or opera or film it comes from and sometimes it is only available in a collection. Though you can find most songs and arias using a keyword search in the library catalog with "quick limit" of scores, some collections don't have the table of contents online, so you have to use books that list songs or special volumes that index songs in collections. This page lists books that list songs and those that index collections and anthologies.
How to use an index: Look up the title of the piece. Once you have found what you want there will be a string of letters or numbers, or a combination of the two. Use this code to look in the front of the volume to find the collection or anthology - then check the library catalog to see if we own it.
