The Music Library needs your support to continue adding to its collection, updating its catalog system, and providing improved services and access. As the number and quality of musical events grows in the Bellingham area, the Music Library's need for new materials and services expands. Help support great music and music education in our community by becoming a Friend of the Music Library.
The Friend's membership fee goes toward purchasing complete works for the Music Library.
Course Reserves are library materials which support classroom assignments and which are placed on reserve by Music Library Staff as requested by WWU Faculty. These items include books, scores, records, compact discs, videos, issues of journals, instructor's personal copies of books, etc. Some reserve items may be electronically duplicated and can be accessed online by going to the catalog and clicking on Reserves. Physical items on reserve are shelved at the Music Library circulation desk and must be pulled by library staff.
