Audio and Video

The music library has an extensive collection of LPs, CDs, and videos. These can be found by searching the catalog for composer, title, or performer, and selecting audio music from the drop-down menu for Type. If you need help locating a recording please ask for assistance. Do not be intimidated by the number of recordings in LP format! The library has record players and headphones available to listen in the library, and assistance is available in operating the equipment. Audiovisual materials and headphones must be requested at the circulation desk.

In addition to the large number of audio materials at the library, there are also some video recordings of art song performances. A few from the collection are:
