Welcome to the Barbara A. Cooke Sheet Music Collection. This online collection contains digital images of sheet music from the Barbara A. Cooke Musical Theatre Collection located at the University of St. Francis Library.
Barbara A. Cooke is an alumna of USF who went on to have a successful career in musical theater that spanned 30 plus years. She spent time on stage in both Chicago and New York City, all the while collecting sheet music, books and other items related to musical theater. In 2008, she approached the University of St. Francis about creating a special collection in the USF Library which would provide a valuable resource for USF students, staff and faculty as well as preserve her years of work spent building the collection.
This online collection contains only titles that are in the public domain. It began in October 2009 with 55 items from a bound volume titled "Selections from Comic Operas - Anna M Goebel," and more music will be added as it enters the public domain.
All originals held by the University of St. Francis. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
