Music and Dance Collections
These collections in Waldo Library contain materials to support the study and research of music and dance. For music, the collections emphasize the art (or “classical”) traditions of Western Europe and the United States, American jazz and musical theatre, and music of non-European origin, primarily of Africa and Asia. Native American, folk, rock and other popular genres are also represented. For dance, the collections cover mostly ballet, modern and jazz.
All items in our music and dance collections can now be found on the second floor of Waldo Library. You can check out most items in these collections. Some items have restrictions. Stop by the service desk in the first-floor lobby to request audio recordings and videos.
