The Music Library arrives on Facebook!

We've got Facebook now too ! So many sites, so little time... hopefully you'll make time for ours.

Which is Scarier ? Halloween or the Election ?

Two new displays are up in the Curriculum Library! Read a scary book

Or read a book and vote for your favorite ! (we'll even let you stuff the ballot box if you want)

What's in our Sneak Peek Case?

Banned Book week is coming. 
But it's not a new phenomenon, nor is it just books! Come visit our peep-show case and see what's inside. 

All of the titles in the case represent a story, a recording, or a person that has been challenged in some way over time. Some people were arrested, others banned from telling their stories through music. Other stories have raised concern for nearly a millennium.

The list includes the author (performers & composers are authors too!), the title, and the call number from the UWM Music Library collection. A link to the pdf is at the bottom of the page.

Here are a few examples of what you'll see.

Smith, Patti. Horses
Z AMY 5050

Strauss, Richard. Salome/Elektra
ML50 S918 S32 1988 

Grushkin, Paul and Dennis King. Art of modern rock : the poster explosion
(RMU) ML3534 G783 2004 

The Doors. Waiting for the sun
Z AMG 3344

Carmina Burana: Gesamtausgabe der mittelaterlichen Melodien mit den dazugelhorigen Texten
M2 C33x C4 1979 

 A copy of the full bibliography of what is inside is available HERE as a .pdf or at the Music & Curriculum Library. Come ask for one!
