The Most Paged Scores and Songbooks

The San Francisco Public Library has long assisted musicians in finding music for their professional, educational and recreational needs.  We keep certain popular music in reference at our page desk in order to assure that the music is always available.  In most cases, library patrons are happy to be able to make a copy of the music for their own individual, noncommercial enjoyment in line with the Fair Use provisions of the copyright law.  The library public often makes for their own recreational pleasure or to practice for an audition.

The most-paged items are frequently collections of musical theatre songs, omnibus song collections, and fake books.  The theatre songbooks are sometimes compiled for a vocal range as are the fake books for the bass clef, Bb and Eb instruments.  The two most uncharacteristic scores on this list are the Collected Piano Music of Jelly Roll Morton and the Ancient Music of Ireland, both of which must somehow reflect the musical tastes of our city.
