Where is the Music Library?

The Music Library is situated in the Musaion Building on the Hatfield Campus.

The Music Library came into existence in 1960, at the same time as the Department of Music. Because of the uniqueness of its collection - it was established on its own premises as a branch of the Department of Library Services. Today its extensive collections include books, serials, sheet music, cd's, gramophone records, dvd's and videos. Orchestral music is a major component of the sheet music collection. The audio-visual facilities include listening tables and a sound proof room for videos and dvd's.
