Using the Music Lending Scheme

The newest iteration of the MLS is intended to be as easy as possible to use. With a single unified search box, searching the system has never been easier.

The search system will take any combination of terms to narrow down your search results as much as possible. The search indexes our full database and allows you to search on keywords, languages, voicing (e.g 'SATB'), and obviously the titles and names of works, in addition to all creatives (composers, arrangers, etc.) associated with the music.

When browsing the MLS, there are 3 important categories of database records: Creatives, Works, and Publications.
