Music Library

The only library located on the historic Lawn, the Music Library at the University of Virginia supports research in musicology, theory and analysis, composition, performance, jazz, musical theater, ethnic and world music, popular music, and folk music. Located on the third floor of Old Cabell Hall, the Music Library has one of the most significant music collections in the southeastern United States. This includes more than 135,000 books, scores, and sound recordings, as well as access to extensive online collections and more than one million tracks of music. The Music Library occupies the original coal furnace area of Old Cabell Hall and features an unusual Guastavino vault as the ceiling of its main floor reading room.
