Streaming Audio

The WSU Libraries subscribe to streaming music databases offering thousands of tracks of classical music, jazz, folk music, and world music.  These subscription-based musical resources are accessible to anyone with a valid WSU network password and ID.

Finding Scores and Operas

     Kemble Stout Music Listening Library

Although the Kemble Stout Listening Library is administered by the School of Music (located in Kimbrough Hall, Room 360) this publicly accessible facility houses music scores that are purchased and owned by the WSU Libraries.  These scores may be checked out with a valid WSU ID card.  Sound recordings that are property of the music department do not circulate but may be listened to in the Kemble Stout Music Listening Library.

Music Special Collections in the Libraries

Holdings include books published before 1800 and facsimiles of medieval and renaissance music books.  Other music-related holdings include original and facsimile manuscripts, photographs, concert programs, rare recordings, and music manuscript collections.   Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections is located on the ground floor of Holland and Terrell Library.  Researchers are welcome, but  please note that normal business hours are Monday - Friday (excluding holidays or other closures) unless other arrangements are made in advance.
