Recorded Music

All of our recorded music is available from the Circulation Desk on the first floor of Carlson Library.  To find musical recordings, you can search by author (which includes both composers and performers) or by title and then Limit/Sort the search to Material Type: Music Record.  A keyword search with the Material Type: Music Record will allow you to combine terms from both the author and the title.

Subject categories used in the UT Library Catalog for music include:

Orchestral Music

Vocal Music: Songs, Choruses, Operas, & Oratorios

Instrumental Music: Piano, Strings, Guitar, Woodwind, & Brass

Popular Music


All multimedia can be checked out for 7 days, with one 7 day renewal.  Fines for overdue media are $0.25 per item per day.

Our music and sound recording collection is available on CD.  A list of all CD holdings by Composer/Performer (PDF, Word, Excel) is available in Microform & Multimedia.  For in-library listening, the department has:

  • 3 CD Players
  • 4 CD/Audiotape Players
  • 12 sets of headphones.

Printed Music (Scores)

Sheet Music

Sheet music or scores are shelved with the book collection.  To find musical scores, you can search by author/composer or by title and then Limit/Sort the search by limiting to Material type: Music Score.  A keyword search with the Material Type: Music Score will allow you to combine terms from both the composer and the title.


Music through OhioLINK

Some OhioLINK libraries will loan their music, so you may want to search on the OhioLINK Library Catalog.  However, many schools do not lend their recordings, and those that do will only lend them for 1 week with no renewal.

These digital music services are made available through OhioLINK and the University Libraries

  • Music & Dance videos from the OhioLINK Digital Resource Commons.
  • OhioLINK Music Center featuring more than 78,000 tracks and 21,000 works from the Naxos Music Library. Users can search for and listen to tracks in six genres - Chinese music, classical music, opera, jazz, spoken word and world music - with works from many well-known composers, including Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Chopin, Strauss, Copeland, and Ellington.

Music at Toledo-Lucas County Public Library

The public library system in Toledo and Lucas County also has music recordings, and includes more general entertainment and popular music than UT.  When searching the TLCPL Catalog, limit the Material Type to Music-CD (or Music-Cassette).  Be sure to note the library or branch where the recording is located.
