New Music in the Killam Library

A list of new Music added to Novanet within the last 30 days.




        The Killam Library music collection supports the music programmes offered by the Dalhousie University Music Department. The collection of scores, recordings, videos/DVDs, journals, books, and electronic resources available to students, faculty, and members of the public are catalogued and accessible through the Dalhousie University Libraries online catalogue, Novanet. This guide to Music resources is intended as a starting point for your research and is not a full list of all our resources. For additional assistance, please contact the Music Subject Specialist, Karen Smith.    

     Music resources have all been pulled together over the summer and relocated to the first floor of the Killam Library, through the glass doors to   the right of the Killam Library Service Point Desk in the main lobby. In this one location music researchers will find all the music recordings, opera and recital DVDs, music scores, print music journals, books about music and  music  reference books such as music specific encyclopedias and directories.
