The Music Collection has printed music (called “scores” in CardCat) in every style for study and performance. They are all listed in CardCat. There are also numerous how-to books and scores for both instrumental and vocal music.
Printed music comes in many formats, and you can use descriptive keywords to narrow your search to the type you need:
Scholarly scores are editions created for study but can also be used for performance. They often include significant articles by the scholars who created the editions. Most are published as sets or series and classified as M2 or M3. These are generally 3-day open reserve items. The New Grove Dictionary of Music & Musicians, available as Grove Music through Oxford Music Online, indexes sets of complete works for many composers. For access to other sets, use CardCator specialized indexes in the Music Collection reference area.
