Browse the Ernest Read Orchestral Collection Online with Ease

21 April 2017 Category : Library

After 3 years of hard work, we are proud to announce that all music scores in the Ernest Read Orchestral Collection are now accessible on the Digital Performing Arts Repository (DPAR).


The Libraries set out to digitize the entire collection for online access in 2014, with the intention of preserving the Collection for reference and research. Around 120,000 pages of fragile scores published 100 years ago were colour scanned.  Library users can now search and explore the Collection on DPAR as well as in the Library Catalogue.  We will continue to bring more resources online for your easy access in future.
