We use the Library of Congress Classification System to gather like items together. See Bowling Green State University's excellent guide to using this System.
You can browse the shelves to discover music works that you never knew existed. If you're looking for trios, a quick search through the M300's may hold some surprises....ah, serendipity!
Music searchers are lucky, because “M” is for music!
Music scores are located under M
Books about music are located under ML
Music teaching materials (both scores and books) are located under MT
Here is a selective overview of the call numbers for music:
ML Literature on Music
MT Musical Instruction and Study
Note: Music library sound and video recordings use a separate classification system.
If you’re looking for music for particular performance forces, use our Music Instrumentation Search
Generally, books about music are located in Tutt Libary. Seay Library houses scores and sound/video recordings. Both libraries provide music reference collections.
