Learning how to research

The subject librarians for Music are your library contacts for specialised literature. They also offer library instruction courses and guided tours for Music.


The Music Section (mus/not) is located on the mezzanine between the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Central Library. In addition to information materials of all kinds, you will find literature and music collections, as well as a comprehensive collection of audio materials in the Multimedia Centre on the mezzanine between the 3rd and 4th floors. This stems from several music collection bequests (e.g., salon music), the Library's own Archive for New Music in Eastern Europe, and a collaboration with the Sophie Drinker Institute (Bremen), a research institute specialising in women's musicological and gender studies.
