Music in the Library

If you're looking for music in the library, you'll find it in one of two places:

  • Books/Scores:  2nd Floor
  • CDs/Videos: Media Services

It's always a good idea to find the call number before venturing upstairs, though, as the library has a lot of books and scores to look at.
