Welcome to the Colburn Library!

The Colburn School Library moved from its small, one-room location in fall 2007 with the opening of the new wing of The Colburn School.

The beautiful new library houses a growing collection of approximately 10,000 scores and parts, 7,000 audio-visual materials, and 3,600 books. The Library's collection includes a substantial foundation of Western art music from all historical periods, complete editions of the works of major composers, as well as a core collection in the humanities and social sciences.

Users have access to many online resources, including the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, JSTOR and the Naxos Music Library. In addition to the circulating collection, the library also houses the archive of Colburn School ensemble performances and master classes.

The library facility includes a listening/viewing room outfitted with Macintosh computers, study tables and carrels, and lounge seating for reading.

Acquired in 2008, the library owns the Theodore Lettvin music collection, which includes the pianist's scores with performance markings. Other collections held by the library include the Frances and Eleanor Meyers Chamber Music Collection and the Heller Audio/Video Collection.

Although check-out privileges are only available to Colburn School students, faculty and staff, the public is welcome to use the library and browse our collections.
