The Buxtehude-Werke-Verzeichnis ("Buxtehude Works Catalogue", commonly abbreviated to BuxWV) is the catalogue and the numbering system used to identify musical works of Dietrich Buxtehude. It was created by Georg Karstädt and published in mid-1970s as Thematisch-Systematisches Verzeichnis der Musikalischen Werke von Dietrich Buxtehude. The second edition, published several years later, contained minor additions and corrections. The catalogue is organized thematically, not chronologically, and contains 275 individual pieces. The Anhang ("Appendix") adds 13 spurious and falsely attributed works.

Fourteen trio sonatas (BuxWV 252–265) were the only works published during Buxtehude's lifetime. Originally published in two volumes, the first seven are now commonly referred to as Buxtehude's opus 1 and the other seven as opus 2.
