Beginning in the 1990's UWM produced over a dozen volumes of printed sheet music. In 2012, the publication of music was moved online. This makes it possible to get one song at a time rather than having to purchase books of 25 songs. It also saves the expense of printing, storing and shipping the books.
The OML includes selections which have been brought in from previously printed volumes, as well as new songs available only from the library. To find a song you can browse the list of selections or use the advanced search features. To evaluate a song you can read the lyrics, view a sample of the sheet music, and for most of the songs listen to a recording. For a single purchase you have the right to make the copies needed for your ministry. Because the music is downloadable, you can instantly have music that you can use.
The library is hosted and administered by Heart Wind Music, LLC, David Ezell, President. Members of the Music Ministry Team are: David Ezell, Chair (Columbia, SC), Jeff English, (Lansing, MI), Rev. Jacqueline Fernandez (Kansas City, MO), Todd Lowry (Albuquerque, NM), Valerie Mackie (Kansas City, MO), and Kim-Char Meredith (Naperville, IL). UWM staff liaison is Diane Pletcher (Kansas City, MO) and UWM Board Liaison is Rev. Sharon Ketchum (Lansing, MI).
