This guide is very much a work in progress, begun in the summer of 2016 and launched in a presentation at the 2016 Rome meeting of the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives, and Documentation Centres (IAML). The goal is to produce a selective list of digital score websites arranged in broad categories to facilitate access to and discovery of this expanding body of online material that comes to us from a diverse, disparate, and diverse body of sources. These include library digital initiatives, academic organizations, commercial publishers and vendors, aggregators and resource providers, creative commons repositories, and the websites of artist-composers.

This guide began developing in late-May 2016 and remains in a beta stage, although it will be growing rapidly through the rest of October in preparation for an evening panel presentation by eight music librarians (Thursday, November 3) on digital scores at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Musicological Society in Vancouver, British Columbia. I happily welcome recommendations for additional resources that meet the selection criteria as well as feedback for improving its utility and correcting errors or broken links. When submitting resources for consideration, please include URLs and a short justification for inclusion. Please note that there are many resources already identified to add to this guide and they will be filling the guide soon. By its very nature, this is a work in continuous development.
