This guide is intended to help you use the UNT Music Library to find printed music for oboe, books about the oboe, journals devoted to the oboe, and more.
The UNT Libraries use the Library of Congress call number system to classify books and scores in our collections. Call numbers for scores begin with the letter M. Here are important numbers to know for oboe music. Under each individual number, scores are usually in alphabetical order by composers' last names. Once you know this, you can browse if you want to select some music.
Oboe alone M 65-69

Oboe with orchestra M 1022-1023
Oboe with orchestra, reduction for oboe and piano
