Listening Services

The Music Library subscribes to several online listening services and also hosts online audio reserves for School of Music courses.

The Music Library enables patrons to access and utilize the library's collection of sound recordings. Patrons can make use of these materials in the library's listening area. To find sound recordings and other materials, please search the library catalog. The Listening Lab can make duplications of School of Music recitals for students and faculty upon request. Please contact Donald Dean (phone: 502-852-5659, email: dedean01@louisville.edu email) with any questions regarding listening services in the Music Library.
