Jump to: navigation, search

Second-hand sheet music shops are often a good source of used public domain scores, which one can scan and contribute to IMSLP.

Here is a list of second-hand music stores around the world. This list does not include:

  • libraries that allow the photocopying of scores
  • second-hand stores that only have a few scores in a corner
  • stores with only new public domain scores
