The Music Materials Center (MMC), a branch library of
the James White Library, provides specialized music
reference service, recordings and listening facilities,
scores, and reference materials to support the study of
music. Primary areas of study supported include
performance, music history and literature, music theory and
composition, church music, music education and music
studied as part of the general education curriculum.
The center houses (1999) about 2,000 compact discs,
6,000 long-playing records, 10,000 scores, and 1,500 books.
The major portion of the James White Library's collection
of books on music are housed in the stacks of the main
library. The library's Information Services Department also
houses basic reference sources on music. Periodicals and
videos on music are also housed in the main library.
