Sibley Library has some of the most diverse scores in the US.   They are currently in process of scanning them to pdf format and can be down loaded for free.   These are scores that are out of copyright and in the public domain.    There are however,  several of the 1880-1920 era Russian Composers and some Soviet that are available.

Is this archive accessible to the public, or do you have to be a member of the faculty, or an accredited academic? Wink

no you can just go here are type in what you are looking for:

https://urresearch.rochester.edu/viewInstitutionalCollection.action;jsessionid=5975AD7A55B9F7173E997FF7DBCF9C90?collectionId=63


they also have a weekly update you can sign  up for that tells you what they uploaded this week.
For example,  one that I thought was interesting was Gretchanov's Quartet:
https://urresearch.rochester.edu/institutionalPublicationPublicView.action?institutionalItemId=26680&versionNumber=1

you can also email for help and they will send you the link for the piece you are looking for.
just remember that up to about 1929  is in public domain... after that you have to request from your local library.. interlibrary loan.

Many thanks for this link, Dave. There are a large number of interesting scores at Sibley which have not yet made it onto IMSLP, so the sites are complementary.

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

I believe they have one of the largest music libraries in North America .. I think the British Library and USA Library of Congress may be bigger but you have to almost go there in person to get copies.

Back when Ruth Watanabe was librarian, the library was accommodating to young musicians. Lately it's been different. I have been asking them for years to scan their copy of Arthur Shepherd's ca. 1919 Violin Sonata, which I saw in their stacks. No response, not even a no. Yet they scan other things that won't be available until 2040 or later.
