Finding Leadsheets

The Music Library (Newman Center, Room 440) has the following fakebook-type volumes on permanent reserve behind the Service Desk:

  • Irving Berlin Fake Book
  • European Real Book
  • New Real Book (vols. 1-3)
  • Just Standards Real Book
    • (E-flat and B-flat)
  • Real Jazz Book
    • (E-flat and B-flat)
  • Real Jazz Classics
  • Standards Real Book
  • World’s Greatest Fake Book

We also have a custom-compiled index of all 10 volumes, so you can just look up a song once. Just ask at the desk for the “Real Book Index.”
