Although all music recordings are listed in the Library Catalog, the Music Holdings Database (located at the Reference Desk) provides additional information such as cut by cut descriptions. It also provides additional data to search. For instance, you can search for performers by name, period (Baroque, Romantic, etc.), instrument or voice (tenor, violin, etc.), and in any combination of terms.

There is a separate notebook for LPs.
You may listen to music in the Library, or check out CDs for three days.
