A major reworking of instrumentation codes and abbreviations has been an ongoing project for the past several months. Abbreviations are consistent with those set by The Music-In-Print Series printed volumes, and on the Abbreviations page of our site.
A Voicing and Instrumentation search has been included in the Sacred and Secular Choral areas.
The Composer Directory has been modified for searching. Alternate spellings for composer names
may now be found when searching, as well as names that are hyphenated.
The Publisher Directory is now undergoing a consistent form of updates. While publisher information
continues to be internally added, verified, and corrected on a daily basis, we update the Publisher Directory approximately twice a month.
Chamber Music In Print - The criteria for including works in this database are that the work must be for two or more unlike instruments
(with or without keyboard accompaniment).
Status of database entries. We are implementing a system of updating that compares titles currently listed in The Music-In-Print Series with the newest publisher catalogs.
We indicate "active" status of existing Music-In-Print titles if they appear in the newest publisher catalog; in the same way,
we indicate "inactive" status of Music-In-Print titles if they do not appear in the newest publisher catalog. All entries in Music-In-Print are listed
with a date of inclusion, and when title status is verified, they will also indicate a verification date.
The Publisher Directory is incorporated into the standard search pages, so that publisher contact
information will display on the same screen as the Music-In-Print record. When an item of interest is located,
please click the "Detail" link to see complete information about that particular edition - including publisher contact

Regular updates - The Music-In-Print Series is continuing its long-standing tradition of cataloging sheet music in print.
Much of our database structure is dynamic, so that changes, corrections, revisions, and updates can be implemented globally. For
instance, when a Publisher's Agent changes and is updated in our Publisher Directory, your search results will also reflect that change.
