Performing Arts Library collections are now part of the general collection
In January 2004, music books, scores, and sound recordings from the Performing Arts Library were integrated into the main St. Paul Campus Library. (The Performing Arts Library closed December 18, 2003.) Books about music (call numbers beginning with "ML") and music scores (call numbers beginning with "M") are now shelved in the regular circulating collection of the main library. Music periodicals and reference books are now in the reference and periodical collections in the main library. Compact discs are available at the Circulation Desk.
