January 2017

Updates from University Libraries

The Music Library is moving!
The University Libraries’ music materials are moving to a new location. Effective January 2017, all music collections (including books, scores, and CDs) will leave their long-time home in the Gateway Library and move to the second floor of Fenwick Library. In the meantime, a whole host of music-related resources are available online 24/7, free to Mason students, faculty, and staff. Use these resources to expand your study of music—or for your own relaxation and enjoyment:

  • Met Opera on DemandOffers full-length performances from the Metropolitan Opera, including Live in HD productions, classic telecasts, and archival radio broadcast recordings for high-quality viewing and listening.
  • Naxos Music Library JazzOffers a large selection of works by over 32,000 jazz legends and contemporary artists from over 200 labels, including Blue Note Records, Warner Jazz, EMI, Fantasy, and others.
  • Music & Performing Arts Video CollectionPresents an extensive array of content in video, audio, and text, covering different time periods, artists, composers, choreographers, and ensembles. Subjects include dance, film, music, and theater.
