What is the Music Library?

The music library contains two types of materials:

  • commercial recordings: LPs, CDs, DVDs, and videotapes covering most types of music, including but not limited to symphonic, chamber, operatic, Broadway musical, popular, jazz, 20th century, pre-renaissance, folk/ethnic music, and more.
  • archival recordings: recordings of University concerts, recitals, staged productions, etc. from 1970 to present.

Faculty can check out materials from the music library for use elsewhere on campus, while students can check music materials out for use within the library. Music scores are located in the library's main collection and can be checked out for two weeks at a time.
