Finding a pre-1923 score to notate

Here’s some help:
1. Visit the library’s gateway: http://www.library.uiuc.edu/catalog/
2. Click “Advanced Search”
3. Click “More Limits” (on the lower right)
4. In the “Year of Publication” space, enter an early year (say 1500) and then click “The year above, up to and including” and type “1922” [Why? because if you don’t set a lower limit such as 1500, the library will include hundreds or thousands of entries that don’t have a date at all.]
5. In the “Primary Format” section, click “Music scores”
6. Click “Set limits”
7. Enter a search term (piano, voice, choir, banjo, etc.) and see what you get.
