National Library of Australia

National Library of Australia

The National Library of Australia holds the greatest collection in the world of material relating to Australia and the Australian people. It ranges from the earliest European works about the Great Southern Land to the most current publications.

The collection includes all formats of material, from books and magazines to pictures, photographs, maps, sheet music, oral history recordings, manuscript papers, ephemera and much, much more! The Library's Music collection includes over 300,000 musical scores and sheet music items as well as work by composers, performers and music organisations. Our collection includes: * Australian published and unpublished sheet music covering a range of musical styles * historical and contemporary music, in notated form * performance posters, programs and tickets * catalogues from the music trade * archival sound recordings of folk music and dance * music notation software and keyboards in some reading rooms * some overseas music to support research and study The Library primarily collects music in notated form and does not generally hold multiple vocal or instrumental parts to support musical performance. Commercially recorded music is held at Australia's National Film and Sound Archive. The Library's Music Cataloguing and Acquisitions Unit oversees the intake of both current and retrospective music for the collection, as well as administering the Australian office of the ISMN Agency.
