The Wisconsin Music Archives contains collections representing all Wisconsin musical traditions and encompassing the period from the 1850s to the present. Strengths of the collection include published sheet music, folk and ethnic music, scores by contemporary Wisconsin composers, recordings issued by Wisconsin labels, and of performers associated with Wisconsin.

To search for Wisconsin Music Archives, check the lists below and the library catalog. Material in the Cuca, Paramount, Wisconsin Folksong, and Wisconsin Sheet Music collections can be searched through the Mills Music Library Digital Collections. Many additional collections are not yet processed, so please consult a staff member for assistance.

Wisconsin Music Archives material may be used within the Music Library. Many items are available upon request during regular business hours. However, fragile material, unusual formats or unprocessed collections often require staff time for preparation. Visiting researchers, in particular, are urged to make an appointment in advance.  Please email or call (608) 263-1884 with questions on accessing material or requesting copies.
