Dissonance in Music - so many meanings


Our 'new book' bulletin board is featuring musicians who created dissonance in some way, whether through the music they wrote or their place in the world. Stop by throughout the semester as we add new titles to the list.

If you know of something new that comes out, pass the information on to Rebecca, or to Eleanor Peterson, our Music Librarianship student who made this board.


Look Local - Music in Milwaukee & Wisconsin

There is lots of amazing music coming out of Milwaukee and Wisconsin - Classical, Popular, you name it. Dating back a long way! 

Music Librarianship student Jennifer Meixelsperger shows us the way !

The Milwaukee Region




















And Wisconsin-wide!




















Come visit and learn a little about music in Wisconsin!


Inventors & Inventions

Good, Bad, or Useless... you decide! 

A new display in the Curriculum Collection looks at the history of inventors and their work. 

Music & Curriculum student Sarah Reynolds did a lot of research in putting this amazing display together! Come see what was invented here in Milwaukee, and browse the books.
