More about the Music Library
Listening and Viewing Stations
There are 18 CD players, 11 Audiocassette players, 4 turntables, 4 video stations with both VHS and DVD players, and 5 computer stations to listen to Web-based audio streaming or Web-based video streaming services. All of the listening stations and all the viewing stations have amplifiers with separate volume controls for up to 5 different sets of headphones. Headphones can be checked out at the Circulation desk for in room use.
All the Music Library's books, scores, CDs, audio and video cassettes, and DVDs are cataloged and are searchable via computer from either on- or off-campus (www.lib.umn.edu ). Most LPs, however, are not in the computer catalog and must be accessed via a card catalog in the library.
Items in the online catalog that have an "in process" designation have been received in the cataloging department of Wilson Library but have not yet been delivered to the Music Library and cannot be checked out. You may request that an "in process" item be "rush cataloged." NB: "In process" scores usually need to be sent first to the bindery, which requires more time before delivery to the Music Library. Use the Get-It request to request any such items.
