Do you know the enchanting song that begins with the lyric “You may talk of golden strands, In the distant foreign lands”? Perhaps not, but if you browse over to the Digital Sheet Music Collection at the University of Colorado you can learn all of the words to “Colorado, My Own”, a ditty which was all the rage in 1916. So far, several hundred pieces of sheet music are currently available, all of which have been selected from the University’s own collection of approximately 150,000 items. Visitors to the site can learn about the digitization process, peruse a list of additional sheet music sites, and of course browse the complete archive of digitized songs by title or theme.
