CD Sheet Music Usage Policy

The Art and Music Collection contains several CD-ROMs that allow the patron to download and print out sheet music. These CDs are housed in the Art and Music Reference Collection and are not available for use outside of the library. The Art and Music Collection houses a computer reserved specifically for use with the sheet music CD-ROMS and for scanning images.

It takes much longer to print a page of sheet music than a page of text. The contents of any single sheet music CD-ROM converts to hundreds of pages of printed material;
therefore, downloading and printing of the entire contents of a CD during a single visit is not allowed. Because the computers in the Art and Music Collection are networked to a single printer and there are times when several patrons are sending print jobs to the networked printer, patrons accessing the sheet music CD-ROMs may be asked by library staff members to limit their printing to only ONE performance part or score. Patrons who wish to print multiple performance parts/scores may be asked to provide their own paper for such large print jobs.
