Welcome Bruins, UCLA Music LibraryThe UCLA Music Library staff are online and available to provide expert help and services. Please see the Library website for up-to-date information about services.

  • PETDOR+Mail provides access to Circulating materials including Books, Music Scores, CDs and DVDs. 
    • UCLA Researchers, Faculty, and Graduate Students can register 
    • UCLA Undergraduates can register if they are Honors or Capstone Students, or enrolled in a class registered by the instructor. 
      • Instructors, if your course requires access to print materials, register it. 
  • For access to online Music Library materials, see our main guide to online research: Music Research Resources Online. New resources include:
    • Music Online: Classical Scores Library, which contains more than 53,000 scores of classical music, ranging from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. 
    • Contemporary Music Score Collection, which contains more than 5,000 open access contemporary music scores published by the UCLA Music Library.
    • Avalon, which houses streaming audio and video collections at UCLA. Content is restricted to UCLA users and requires additional UCLA authentication for use both on and off campus via the "Sign in" link.
  • If you find you need something that we do not own, please request a purchase either through the online request form or by sending an email to Callie. Even if you are not sure if there is an electronic version, feel free to request it, as many titles are now available in e-format. We have also switched to acquiring e-books for new book purchases. If a desired title is only available in print, we will receive it at a later point. 
  • We will have a Virtual Fall Office Hour on October 15. Drop in any time between 3:30 and 4:30 to meet Music Library staff and learn about Library collections and services.
