The Archive is part of the Sarasota County Library Special Collections Department of the Selby Public Library, the Sarasota Music Archive is one of the nation’s leading music reference collections containing several hundred thousand recordings, tapes, music scores, books, and memorabilia. The collection includes opera, vocal, choral, musicals, jazz, popular, folk, instrumental, and orchestral music. Recordings may be in the form of Edison wax cylinders, one- or two-sided shellac disks, LP vinyl records, laser disks, DVDs, or compact disks. A listening station is available at the Archive.
The catalogue is online at: www.sarasotamusicarchive.org. Volunteers check and catalog donated materials, plan programs and events, and provide assistance to members and the public.
Recordings and music scores that are not needed for the collection are sold at very reasonable prices to the public. Materials may be copied.
