Music Librarian: Carolyn Johnson
The music library serves the research, information and performance needs of the Department of Music and the entire college community. The library collection includes books about music and musicians, periodicals, reference sources and indexes (print and electronic), collected works of major composers, study and performance scores of music, sound and video/laser disc recordings of musical performances, and computer-based support for the teaching and research needs of users. Special collections of sound recordings such as the Hilliar Collection (opera) and the Shelley Jazz Collection complement the main holdings of the library. A special collection of 19th and 20th century sheet music of (primarily) popular songs is also available for research use.
