The sheet music database consists of over 12,000 pieces of 19th and 20th century American popular music. It includes published piano-vocal sheet music and Tune-Dex cards (lead sheets on 3x5 index cards). Users may search the database by keyword, song title, songwriter, and year; or browse alphabetically. Additionally, search results can be filtered by format. Detailed information about a piece of music can be obtained by clicking on the song title.
Songbooks and shape-note hymnals are cataloged in the GIL Catalog, the Georgia State University online catalog.
Copyright policy dictates that sheet music published after 1922 may be duplicated solely for private study, teaching, scholarship, or research purposes. Any other use requires the permission of the current rights holder. Please submit any questions or requests to the Popular Music and Culture Archivist.
