Outline for Music-related Classification System
At UMA we use the Library of Congress (LC) classification system. The system uses both letters and numbers to organize books and music by topic or subject, and the categories related to Music are:
M = Music (Printed scores and sheet music)
ML = Literature on Music (Musicology, biographies of musicians, etc.)
MT = Instruction and Study (Music theory and methods, practice guides, etc.)

Search for articles (across multiple databases), books, and more--all at once! What is OneSearch?
URSUS : Use the URSUS catalog to find physical books and online books in the Libraries, the University of Maine System, and beyond. If you wish, you can limit your search by using the left side-bar options. Some options include Library Location, online only, by date, eBooks, and videos. Further down on the left are links to MaineCat and WorldCat. By clicking these, your search will be performed in those resources.
MaineCat : If you don't find what you need using URSUS, then try Mainecat which contains books from all over Maine.
WorldCat : If no library in Maine owns the book, try searching the worldwide library catalog: WorldCat. Items found in WorldCat may be requested with Interlibrary Loan. This provides access to millions of items outside the state of Maine. Please plan ahead - shipments for items outside of Maine can be a week or more, depending on the location of the lending library.
