Music in the library

No, we're not thinking here of  the "Music at Noon" program the library has hosted for some time now, but we are thinking instead of the music resources that available to you. The college offers a minor in music, and music is an important element in dance, education, theater and other disciplines. We have some interesting resources to support these areas, one rather unique item being "Naxos." This is an online database of music, as well as a source of information on composers etc. Give it a listen sometime!

For more music resources, please see our research guide to music. (Shown here from Naxos is a caricature of Soviet composer Dimitri Shostakovich, the subject of a music class assignment currently underway.)
