Listening Facilities

Individual and small group listening stations are available for analog and digital audio formats including compact disc, LP, cassette, reel to reel, and streaming. Although the music library provides sound recording equipment compatible with various formats, the library is unable to offer duplication or reproduction services which do not comply with U.S. copyright laws.

The multi-use lab has five computers (three PCs, two Macs) with music notation software (Finale 2014.5 and Musescore), Microsoft Office, EndNote, and other common applications. Computer use is restricted to AU students, faculty and staff. Public computer access is available at Bender Library by request.

The lab also contains a 50" plasma screen TV that can be used on a first-come, first-served basis with headphones, or can be reserved by DPA students or faculty for class-related purposes. Contact a Music Library staff member for details, and to schedule a reservation. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
