Music Scores & Vinyl Records Move

Posted on September 10th, 2012 by


You can now find the music scores on the third floor of the library located near the music book collection.
The Music Library that was in the Fine Arts Building was closed in June in consultation with the Music Department.  We worked out a plan to integrate music library collections into the main library, and then with the help of Physical Plant we moved the collections over this summer. 
If you are wondering how they got those huge shelves up to the third floor, they were brought in through the third floor window.

The vinyl albums can be found on the first floor in the Audio-Visual area. There are listening stations with record players located nearby. 

Around 2700 vinyl albums were retained that had institutional significance and ones that support our jazz collection.  Remember that around 1600 of those albums are being digitized and over half can already be heard through our library catalog with on-campus access.

We are pleased that the music collection is even more accessible to everyone on campus.
