The Music Library, located in the Music building, houses the majority of the Library's collections related to music. The entrance is on the 1st floor (Music 1400), but the collections and library services are located on the 2nd floor (Music 2410, etc.)

Our collections emphasize music of the Western art traditions and diverse world cultures, particularly the vernacular and traditional music of Eastern Europe, India, the Middle East, and the United States. Formats include books, scores, sound recordings, journals, and videos.

Music microforms are located in the Main Library on the 2nd floor.
