The Faculty of Music Library

The Music Library is the ideal place to access resources that will enrich your musical projects and research work. In our spaces, you can use a computer station, scan texts, images and music, print. You can also work in the silent zone or reserve a table for teamwork in the Room provided for this purpose. Our Sofia search tool will allow you to locate all the documentation present in our collections as well as those of other universities in Quebec or around the world. You can, of course, borrow scores, books, magazines, recordings, etc. you need, get information from team members to find the titles or documentation by subject you want to obtain, attend practical workshops to learn more about the tools (catalogs, databases, software) available to you.

From our web page, you will be able to explore research guides, access specialized music databases (journal articles, dictionaries, encyclopedias, audio or video recordings, digital scores), chat for help in time real or specifics.

For multidisciplinary approaches, do not hesitate to explore the different tabs of the UdeM Libraries website: there you will find a wealth of useful information for your academic career.
