Types of Resources in Music


We have about 1450 titles classifed as music on our shelves. These will be found on the upper level. See side bar for a break down of the arrangement. In addition the library has access to an additional 700 titles through our ebooks services.


The library houses about 2200 printed scores on the upper level northeast quadrant. We also have 58 collections of scores on compact disk that can be checked out and you can print your own score.


The majority of out recordings are streamed online through the Naxos Music Library. You may search our catalog or the Naxos site for individual works. Our collection of compact discs are housed on the upper level southwest quadrant adjacent to the music books and scores. Please take the case to the Circulation Desk to pick up the actual disc. 


Our media collection contains a number of Operas and Musicals for viewing. They are housed on the lower level of the library along the wall near the United Brethren Historical Center. Search the catalog for the specific title.
