Hymnal Collections of North America

Hymnal Collections of North America is a guide to the known hymnal collections owned by libraries, museums, and other institutions, in addition to those owned by individuals. Hymnary.org has made a great number of hymnals available online, but there are still many thousands not yet available in this way. It is our hope that you can find these hymnals either by searching WorldCat.org or by looking through the hymnal collections here. The 2003 edition of Hymnal Collections of North America is available at Scarecrow Press.

If you know of a collection that should be listed here, please email us.

Thanks, and enjoy!
