Music Library

After extensive discussions between the School, Library Executive, Provost’s Office, and Dean’s Office, a plan was developed to create an ample and unified space for the Music collection on the third floor of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, including new furniture, equipment, and articulated interior spaces that will help meet the needs of students and faculty in the School.  Music faculty and student representatives provided input to this plan that will create a dynamic and productive new space, and will accommodate many of the ways in which we use the collection, now and in the future.

We look forward to seeing you in the new Music, Art and Architecture Library in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre:

  • Music collections on levels 3 – 4
  • Listening stations, multimedia rooms on level 3.
  • Music reference staff offices on level 4, room 414. Telephone and email contacts remain unchanged.
