Welcome to the Music Library

You are the reason these resources are here. They are the platform that supports and informs your research, whether you’re a first-year student straight out of high school, a doctoral candidate, research & teaching faculty, an external scholar, or simply a member of the public interested in music. We collect and preserve knowledge in all its formats to serve people like you now and for generations to come.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back for 2017-18! I started this job on July 1st, and I join all the Music Library staff in wishing you all the best for your studies and performances in the coming year!

-Jan Guise, Head Librarian
