Music Collections

The Music Collection is located in two places on campus:

  • The Music Library (Hugh Hodgson School of Music 3rd Floor - Room 350) operates as a branch of the Main Library, with a collection including commonly used books, scores, pedagogical materials, and major curriculum series used in elementary and secondary school music programs. The Music Library also serves as the primary access point for music audio and video recordings and also music course reserve materials. It is also a pick up/drop off point for requested music materials from the Music Library collection as well as all UGA libraries.
  • The Music Research Collection (Main Library 2nd floor) houses the print collection including books, scores, periodicals, and the Music Reference Collection.
