Music in the Library (Part 1)
When thinking about the library, one doesn’t really consider the potential for music hidden past the silence and the stacks of books. However, the library is an excellent way to get involved in music in a variety of ways.
The music library, located on the second floor of Mugar Library, houses a vast collection of music recordings and books written about them. While many of the recordings focus on the music from long before our life times, there is a growing collection of resources that appeal to a wider audience.
The library houses original LPs of the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Hollywood Bowl concert album, as well as CD reissues of most of their music. The music library also holds CD recordings of most of the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and U2. All of the recordings in the music library are available from the Music Library window on the second floor of Mugar.
The music library also has a listening room with several stations of professional level sound equipment and high quality headphones to listen to any recording, but if you prefer more privacy you can bring your own headphones and computer and listen in your own space.
