NUS Libraries

The Music library is situated on Level 1 of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music building and it is the youngest of all NUS Libraries. It opened in July 2006.

Our collection is focused on western art music tradition. As at June 2016, there are over 8,000 books, 27,000 music scores, 13,000 CDs, 1,200 DVD titles and 100 journals. There are state-of-the-art listening and multimedia viewing stations as well as computers in the library.

A small electronic piano is also in the library for the convenience of the Conservatory's students and researchers.

As a general guide, CDs, DVDs and Current Journals are found on Level 1 and Books, Full Scores and Bound Journals are located on Level 2. If you want to borrow CDs and/or DVDs, bring the CD/DVD cases to the Loans Desk to request for the discs. Parts of Chamber Music are located in the library office, so again, request for them at the Loans Desk.
