Happy New Year!

If you need a refresher on the New Year's Eve song, Auld Lang Syne, click on the image to the right for a prinatable copy.  This copy was scanned from Sixty Patriotic Songs of All Nations, arranged by Granville Bantok (Boston, Oliver Ditson Company, 1913).  Books copyrighted before 1923 in the United States are in the public domain, which means you can make a copy of arrangements in this book without paying a fee to the publisher.

Bracken Library provides scanners in large and small formats.  Ask at the Reference Desk, Music Collection Counter, or Educational Resources Counter for assistance.  You can scan directly to your ilocker account, or save onto a flash drive in many formats, including .pdf.

Holiday Music

After a long semester and seemingly endless Finals Week you may want to kick back with some holiday music.  For compact discs to check out, go to CardCat's advanced search, select "Compact Discs, audio" as the format, and then type the holiday of your choice.  The Music Collection has over 250 CDs of Christmas music and several CDs of music for Hannukah and Solstice celebrations.

If you are already out of town, you can use your Ball State username and password to listen to Naxos playlists:
