About the Music Library

The Music Library, located on the second floor in the 2400 wing of the Music Building, houses the majority of the UCSB Library's collections related to music.

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-related microforms are held at the Main Library in the 2nd-floor Microform Collection.

Arts Library Project

The Library is planning a new Arts Library by bringing together the Music and Art & Architecture Collections into a modernized space in the main Library building. As part of the project, the Music Library collection, services and staff will be moved from the Music Building to the main Library.
