International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP)


Welcome to the main page for the IMSLP! IMSLP is a project that attempts to create a virtual library containing all musical scores that are in the public domain, as well as taking score submissions from composers who are willing to share their music with the world without charge. You can read the full list of goals that IMSLP will try to achieve. IMSLP is officially online as of Feburary 16, 2006.

IMSLP also encourages the exchange of musical ideas, both in the form of musical works, and in the analysis of existing ones. Therefore, feel free to create/edit a page with your analysis of a particular piece (please use the "Discussion" link on the work page of that particular piece).

Ongoing Projects

As of the moment, the "official" project of IMSLP (in addition to the normal adding of various scores) is scanning and releasing two sets of symphonies in full score. More info about this can be found here (also visit this page if you want to help with this project).

How to Contribute

You can contribute by simply participating in the growth of this wiki by sharing your knowledge in music with others, or you can upload scores if you want to. You can also visit the vacant staff positions page.

For score submissions, read this guideline, and guide/walkthrough.


We also have a normal forum system here.

How Wikis Work

For some people, this might be the first wiki that you visit. Wikis are, in fact, very easy to use. Probably the most basic thing you will want to know about the IMSLP wiki is that most pages can be edited by anyone. You can go to this test page and try editing it with the "Edit this page" button at the top of the page.

A tutorial on how wikis work can be found here.

Library Search

You can search for a work or a type of work by searching via the composer's name, composer's time period, work's type/genre, or the work's time period. You can also use the "search" box on the side of the page.
