This blog is intended to give you a glimpse into the collections of the Loeb Music Library, Harvard University’s main repository for music materials. Over the months and years to come, we will be selecting items to showcase the Music Library’s collections and services: from chant to hip hop, composers’ manuscript scores to streaming audio recordings, the library collects widely across the spectrum of musical expression. We hope that you will find one thing – or many things – to intrigue you.

Special thanks is due to the many members of the library’s staff who have drawn attention to new acquisitions, written blog entries, and shared their enthusiasm about new recordings, favorite operas, archival collections, and much more.

Do you have comments or more questions about one of the featured items? Please share them with us; we look forward to hearing from you!
