      This page lists the alphabetization rules for this domain, i.e. how musician's last names are ordered. Thanks to the Oshkosh Public Library Information Desk Staff for their assistance in finding the following pages, and their expert advice:

The 12 Filing Rules [Archive]
18 Filing Rules For Proper Alphabetizing [Archive] - (PDF Format) (get Acrobat Reader)

      There does not seem be 100% agreement on every alphabetization rule, and sources like books either follow varying rules, or make up their own. To be clear, each source should document the rules they use. This is why this page was created.
