Music Resources in the Library
In additional to traditional library materials like books, magazines, and journals, we have other resources that may be of use to music majors here at CCSU. Located on Stack Level 4 in the library students will find the following:
Books about music and music research
DVDs and VHS tapes about music or of musical performances
This is a list of call numbers for books, scores, and records. Call numbers help group together materials that cover the same or similar subject matters. You can use this when browsing our music collection, which can be found on stack level 4.
Browse CentralSearch for music journal and magazine subscriptions.
