Content of the Music LibGuide

This guide gives you an overview of the Uniarts Helsinki Library’s music resources. The guide also contains direct links to the Finna and Arsca search portals.

On the Sheet music tab, we have compiled a list of sheet music databases, and on the Recordings and videos tab, there’s a list of websites that offer collections of recordings and videos. On the Books and theses tab, you’ll find links to e-books and GoogleBooks.

On the Journals tab, you’ll find information on scientific journals included in the library’s collections and instructions on how to search for them. You can also perform a search in the Arsca and Finna databases on the same tab. The Articles and databases tab gives you an overview on how to search for articles and provides links to the databases that Uniarts Helsinki has the access to.

On the Other information sources tab, you’ll find links to different music themed sites, such as online sheet music stores and music organisations’ homepages. The guide also includes a list of a few Finnish archives with a short description and a link to the archive homepage.

Music Information Clinic

Uniarts Helsinki students and staff can book an appointment to an individual guidance session, where you can learn how to search for information e.g. within the field of music.
