About the Music Library

The music library at West Virginia Wesleyan College supports the curricular, research, and performance needs of the department of music, the School of Fine Arts and Humanities, and the entire campus community by providing access to both physical and digital resources in the discipline of music.

Though based in the music department, the music library is an extension service of the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library. It serves as the primary repository for musical performance and research materials for the department of music. The music library's holdings are supplemented by music-related manuscripts and recordings found in the circulating and reference collection of the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library and all music materials in both libraries may be located by searching the library's online catalog. While the music library is primarily used by students and faculty in the department of music, the collection is accessible to any member of the campus community.

Questions about the music library should be directed to Brett Miller, Music Librarian.

The collection includes scores of the complete works of J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, G.F. Handel, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Frederic Chopin as well as numerous other works in both full and miniature score formats. The music library is currently working to increase its jazz and musical theatre holdings in addition to its already prominent classical collection. Some details of the collection:

 

  • 1,800+ compact discs
  • 7,000+ books and musical scores
  • 100+ videos (DVD and VHS)
