The Otto E. Albrecht Music Library and Eugene Ormandy Music and Media Center are located in the Van Pelt Library, on the fourth floor (west). We serve the research and teaching needs of Penn’s Music Department and the Penn music community. At the core of the collection are scores in both scholarly and performing editions, literature on music history and theory, ethnomusicology, jazz, popular music, and microforms of primary sources. We house more than 70,000 books, more than 75,000 music scores (print and digital), and more than 50,000 sound recordings and video (digital and analog formats), as well as journals and periodicals. more... →
