The Kemble Stout Listening Library in Kimbrough Hall Room 360 has a sizable private collection of sound recordings that are the property of the music department. These recordings do not circulate, but anyone can listen to them on-site. This group of recordings is included in Search It (online catalog).
Although the Stout Listening Library belongs to the Music Department, this publicly accessible facility in Kimbrough Hall Room 360 houses music scores that are purchased and owned by the WSU Libraries.
