Presser Music Library


Course Reserves

Print course reserves for classes taught in the Wells School of Music are located behind the library desk. Course reserves check out for three hours, must stay in the library, and check out on a first come, first served basis.

Some of our technology is also only available to students taking certain courses. Professors will notify the students in those courses of the library's reserved technology. These items check out for three days only to the students on the provided course lists.


The Presser Music Library has headphones and disc drives for 3 hour in-library use and laptops and equipment for 3 day loan. We also have various equipment for in-library use that does not need to be checked out to use. Please see the University Libraries' Borrowing Policy for information about lost or overdue items. You can always contact us for more information about our equipment and availability.
