Purpose of this Guide

This guide serves to showcase some of our more popular books that you might consider reading just for the pleasure of it, rather than for research or class purposes.  Aside from the shared theme of "music," they're complied into loose categories.

Many of these books are located in the Music Library's Open Stacks on the third floor, but plenty of others are on the first and second floors, in the Main Library Stacks, or the Curriculum Resource Center.  Be sure to click on the link to get the exact location.
