What is BartonPlus?

BartonPlus searches the Barton catalog and most MIT-licensed e-resources, including e-books and full-text articles. Extensive, but does not include ALL materials available to the MIT community.


Music collections

The Lewis Music Library contains books, journals, scores, CDs, and DVDs in subjects including classical, jazz, popular, electronic, world, folk, and film music.

The library also subscribes to streaming audio, streaming video, and bibliographic databases that are available to the MIT community.

Searching for music

  • Enter your search terms in BartonPlus
  • Narrow your results by using "Publication Type" (Audio, Music Scores, Videos):

    (Tip: Click on “Show More” for additional categories).

  • Broaden your search by using an asterisk (*) for plurals or other word endings: symphon* = symphony, symphonies, etc.
  • To limit by publication date, use "Refine your results":

  • For more BartonPlus search help, click on the question mark next to the Search button:

Tip: some large collections don't list the contents; MIT's WorldCat may help. The Lewis Music Library reference staff can also show you print indexes that may help locate what you want.

Tip: LPs (33 1/3 phonograph records), some music scores, and some CDs are in storage; click “Get it in the library” (new browser tab will open) and use the "Request Item" button:
