Music Library

The Music Library on the second floor of Mugar Memorial Library includes books, scores, periodicals, recordings, and videos. Use the catalog search, just above. We support teaching, research, and exploration through the collection and offer services including course building, reserves, and instructional sessions.

Every Saturday: RILM 101 or Expert. Swing by for a one-on-one with Brett Kostrzewski any time between 11am and 7pm. Build your comfort level interpreting and navigating findings in RILM Abstracts (Repertoire International de Litterature Musicale), a comprehensive and specialized database of citations for writings about music in all genres, from all eras—covering publications not all included in the Library’s basic online search. Another benefit: familiarity with RILM’s vendor platform will fast-track you for using the Music Index and RIPM databases, both of which are also offered on the same platform.
