The Popular Song Collection

Currently the Popular Song Collection contains close to 40,000 songs in print format which can be viewed at the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.   The majority of material kept in this location is comprised of full piano-vocal musicals, selections from musicals and compilations by a specific composer and/or performer.  Additionally one will find a limited selection of fake/real books, Zarzuelas, Christmas and wedding music in the Popular Song Collection.  

This collection, centrally located at the music reference desk on the 2nd floor, allows the user to find a large and varied amount of sheet music in one area.  Because of the repetitive demand for many of the items found in the Popular Song Collection, these items are not allowed to leave the building.  However, duplicate scores which are located in the open stacks may leave the building in accordance with current circulation regulations at the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
