The library has a large collection of sound recordings in both CD and LP formats, primarily covering music of the Western classical tradition but also including jazz, popular music and world music. CDs are on open access and can be found on the lower ground floor arranged, for the most part, in alphabetical order by principal composer. Our extensive collection of opera CDs is shelved separately from the main sequence, in the Library Mac Lab, along with the Jazz, Popular music and World music recordings. You can listen to the CDs in the library using the listening equipment provided. Members of the University may borrow CDs.
Most of our extensive LP collection is accessible via the card catalogue.
