**Abstract:** This talk will be an introduction to moduli spaces of sheaves. We will see some motivating questions that lead to the study of moduli spaces of sheaves, and discuss examples telling us why the notion of stability is needed, even in the simplest case of vector bundles on curves. Then I will survey some results on moduli spaces of sheaves on surfaces, especially those of K3 and abelian surfaces and applications to holomorphic symplectic geometry.
