Where's the Music?

Scores and Books on Music -- These can be found in the 3rd Floor stacks on the south end (i.e., farthest from the Circulation Desk).  Oversize scores and books are at the north end of the stacks on the 3rd floor.  Reference books are on the 2nd floor.

Audio and Video Recordings -- On the main floor between the Library Conference Room and the Electronic Classroom.

If you'd like to browse the shelves, you can view an outline of the call number system by clicking on the tab "Search tips." 

Online Music Resources -- Use the tabs "Streaming Music" or "Find articles" to access recordings or articles from any computer.

Periodicals -- Current periodicals are on the main floor.  Bound (older) periodicals are on the lower level.  All periodicals are shelved alphabetically.

Rare Music Materials -- See a librarian regarding rare materials.
