You'll find a variety of music and videos on music topics (including performances of, e.g., full operas) in the database Alexander Street Press: Music & Performing Arts. that's available in our Databases A-Z. Just click on that link. When you access that from off-campus, you'll enter your Net ID and password when it asks for that.
Find CD's (both music and spoken word) by searching using the Books tab in the search box in the middle of the Library website home page. Search on a composer name or a music group or solo artist or even a style of music and the phrase compact disc. For example, to find the CD's with Wayne Shorter, you can enter: Wayne Shorter compact disc then click search. To narrow that down to CD's, use the filters on the left side of the screen. I recommend clicking on "Available in Library." That will show you a list of items that includes CD's (and LP's if we have them).
As always, contact me if you encounter technical difficulties or just want to consult about locating the music you want to hear. My contact information is in the box on the right. Thanks! -Tom
