This guide is designed to help get you started with your library research in music. To find books, journal articles, scores, recordings, and videos, click on the "I need to find ..." tab; to browse current articles in selected journals, go to the "Online journals" tab.
Contact me if you have any comments or questions, and please let me know if there's anything you'd like the library to purchase. Or stop by the reference desk in our new Fine Arts & Design Library (George Pearl Hall, 4th floor), and stay to enjoy our spectacular views, pleasant group-study rooms, and of course our extensive print and media collections.
UNM University Libraries now subscribes to five exciting new audio databases: African American Song, American Song, Classical Music Library, Contemporary World Music, and Smithsonian Global Sound. Several Music Department faculty members are already using these resources for their listening assignments, and instructors can create folders tailored to a specific class.
Click on the "Listen online" tab at the top of this page, and enjoy!
If you look behind the circulation desk in the Fine Arts & Design Library, you'll notice that our reserve materials, CDs, videos, and DVDs are kept in compact-shelving units, which can be moved back and forth on built-in tracks. A student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has imagined an novel use for compact shelving! Be sure your computer's speakers are turned on.
