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 creating a new Arts Library by bringing together the Music and Art & Architecture Collections into a modernized space in the main Library building. The Music Library will permanently close to the public on Monday, August 5. Music collection materials will be inaccessible to patrons for the approximately eight weeks it takes to move all collections into the Arts Library. Music Course Reserves and Interlibrary Loan pick-ups will move to the main Library Services Desk at the start of Summer Sessions on June 24.
