Staff at the Archive of Recorded Sound have, for the first time, created a complete inventory of the ARS Sheet Music Collection. This culmination of over 13,000 published titles was generated through various donations during the Archive's first 60 years (1958-2018). The vast majority of titles within the collection are popular music scores published in the United States along with publications from England, France, Italy, and elsewhere.
