Welcome / Welcome Back from the Music Collection

It's hard to believe summer is over.  The Music Collection welcomes new and returning students, music majors and the general student body alike.

What's new for 2011-2012
There are new Subject Guides, with tips for specific types of music:
Last year, over 1,000 items were added to each part of the collection (recordings, scores, and books) last year:  recordings, scores, and books.  Compact disc additions include the latest popular music, major label classical stars, and reissues of classic performances.  The Educational Resources Collections also added many music DVDs, including operas and Hollywood musicals.

Naxos Music Library has announced the addition of EMI Classics and Blue Note to the labels it streams.  Currently, there are almost 800,000 tracks available already.  Both of these labels will provide major contributions to the selection.

No matter what your style, there is a CD, DVD, or score for your interests.  Ball State Libraries' Media Finders can help you find your next favorite...

CD or sheet music by instrumentation (Chamber Music)

New CDs are posted on the bulletin board next to the counter.  The Music Collection is open whenever Bracken Library is open.  Stop by and find something new to tickle your ear!
