By its very nature music can be a challenge to find in any organized space, not just the music library. The Library has two guides that we hope will help make your searches for music in our library easier and more often successful. In the menu of our Library Guides they are Finding Music Materials and How to Use Online Catalog.
And as always, feel free to ask our library staff for assistance whenever you have a question or for help finding anything you need or are looking for in our Library.

In honor of St. Valentine’s Day this Friday, the CCM Library and the Archives and Rare Books Library present an item from the Rare Books Collection, Le Chansonnier Cordiforme, or Chansonnier de Jean de Montchenu. The original manuscript dates from the 1470s and is owned by the Bibliothèque de France (Ms. Occ. Rothschild 2973). The UC Libraries’ copy is a facsimile of the original, bound in red velvet and created by Vicent García Editores of Valencia, Spain in 2007.
The next concert in the Music in the Gorno Library series will take place on Thursday, November 14 at 5 pm in the Albino Gorno Memorial Music Library Reading Room, 6th floor of Blegen Library. Presented by UC’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) and UC Libraries, the concert will include works by Wagner and Schoenberg.
