About

Room 204 in Mabee Fine Arts Center is the Music Library where many music materials are housed. Student workers monitor the Music Library and circulate materials either to be used in the Library or to be checked out of the Library.

The Music Library collection includes books, scores, sound recordings, video recordings, and reference works. A reserve collection is also maintained for specific course assignments. Additional books, reference works, microforms, videos, and periodicals of the music collection are housed in the Riley-Hickingbotham Library.

The entire music collection is maintained by a professional music librarian.
