It may not feel like spring weather, but the spring semester is here. Please bear with us with a long post with some updates.
Research help/course help
As always, we are here to help you with finding books, articles and other sources for research papers/class projects, and can help you find scores, recordings, videos, and other materials. We’re available by email, phone, and in person–just ask for a librarian at the desk.
Music Library seating & carpeting
We are happy to announce that there is new carpeting throughout the library. This replaces the area destroyed by the flood as well as the older carpeting. Please help keep your study space clean by avoiding all messy foods in the library. We will be getting new seating for study areas, and you are invited to try test models and submit your comments.
Seating options for study spaces
New scores, CDs, books, and databases
Naxos Music Library Jazz: We have an extended trial through September 30, 2014. NML-Jazz has an extensive collection including the catalogues of Blue Note and Warner/EMI. Please note that most of the jazz content has been pulled from Naxos Music Library and moved to NML-Jazz. Access both via our Streaming Audio and Video page.
Other recent acquisitions of note: facsimile editions of the full and piano 4-hands scores of Rite of Spring; Grove Dictionary of American Music, 2nd ed. online and in the reference section; scores and recordings by senior June in Buffalo 2014 composers; and, clocking in at CD 20000, the UB Music Department’s own CD, University at Buffalo Music.
If you would like to post a notice for a department-affiliated or co-sponsored event on the event bulletin board in the Baird Lobby, please bring a copy inside the library and we will be happy to post it for you. We want to help you attract great audiences to your concerts, recitals, and lectures.
Exhibit in Commemoration of the Inaugural Concert Funded by the Muriel Wolf and Albert Steger Endowment for the Music Library, curated by John Bewley, is newly on display in the exhibit cases in the library. The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Muriel Wolf and Albert Steger Endowment inaugural concert, (Re)Constructions, presented by Wooden Cities with a program of works by Buffalo composers (concert Feb. 7, Brown Bag Feb. 4).
Library skills workbook
For those still needing to meet your gen-ed workbook requirement, we hope you will keep the music version in mind.
We are always happy to answer any questions you have, and we look forward to seeing you in the library or working with you by phone or email. Best wishes for a productive and enjoyable spring semester.
