Music materials at the University Libraries can be found on the third floor under the call numbers M, ML, and MT. Find the call number for your instrument and browse our stacks for music to play! Or, find the call number for your favorite type of book. (My personal favorite is biographies of musicians, ML410.) Enjoy the vast resources available for you at the University Libraries!
M – Music Scores
ML – Books, information about music
MT – Music Education
Most libraries in the United States use the Library of Congress classification. Therefore, if you become familiar with this arrangement of materials for music, you will be able to find materials quickly and easily not only at USD, but also at most major libraries in the U.S. A further explanation of Library of Congress call numbers for music can be found at the
Guide to Music Classification Numbers.
