I am pleased to announce that U of T Libraries has subscribed to the online contemporary score platform, Babelscores!

Babelscores is a French-based, internationally-focused resource promoting new music composed during the last 40 years. Featuring over 210,000 pages of music, the platform offers complete digitized scores (issued by publishing houses or self-published) and streamed audio recordings of works by several hundred active composers to form the largest continually growing online music library of contemporary music. It also features a virtual music-score reader with zoom and full-screen options, plus biographies of the composers. Included in the list of composers whose works are available on Babelscores is current University of Toronto DMA student, Paulo Brito.
