The Music Library supports the scholarly and performance research needs of the College of Music by collecting and preserving monographs, reference works, periodicals, printed music and sound recording formats, as well as subscribing to electronic databases for research and streaming music. Special collections are a particular strength of the Music Library’s holdings, emphasizing the many genres classified under Western art music and jazz, but also popular music and various sub-genres. Ten full-time staff and around 30 student assistants also provide reference and access services, ensuring that the College of Music and all outside researchers are able to locate and access music materials.
