What if I need to find Beethoven Manuscripts?

The Morgan Library and Museum, in New York, has a website called Music Manuscripts Online - it could be just what you need!  Why not take a look?  (We've saved this link at our Library Music Portal on Moodle, so it's there when needed.  Like for your forthcoming Beethoven essay, maybe?)

From the website:- "The goal of the Music Manuscripts Online project has been to create and to provide online access to high-quality images and descriptions of music manuscripts owned by The Morgan Library & Museum. Works by J. S. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Faur√©, Haydn, Liszt, Mahler, Massenet, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Puccini, Schubert, and Schumann, among many others, can be viewed on these pages. Images and descriptions of these manuscripts will be available on the Morgan’s Web site for study by scholars, musicians, and the general public."
